The Freetext Matching Algorithm: a computer program to extract diagnoses and causes of death from unstructured text in electronic health records

Shah AD et al, BMC medical informatics and decision making, 12(1)

BACKGROUND:
Electronic health records are invaluable for medical research, but much information is stored as free text rather than in a coded form. For example, in the UK General Practice Research Database (GPRD), causes of death and test results are sometimes recorded only in free text. Free text can be difficult to use for research if it requires time-consuming manual review. Our aim was to develop an automated method for extracting coded information from free text in electronic patient records.

Survey of patient and public perceptions of electronic health records for healthcare, policy and research: Study protocol

Luchenski S et al, BMC medical informatics and decision making, 12(1)

BACKGROUND:
Immediate access to patients’ complete health records via electronic databases could improve healthcare and facilitate health research. However, the possible benefits of a national electronic health records (EHR) system must be balanced against public concerns about data security and personal privacy. Successful development of EHR requires better understanding of the views of the public and those most affected by EHR: users of the National Health Service. This study aims to explore the correlation between personal healthcare experience (including number of healthcare contacts and number and type of longer term conditions) and views relating to development of EHR for healthcare, health services planning and policy and health research.
