Hong Yu, MS, MA, PhD
Seminar date: 1/14/2014
Description: As of January 2013, Veterans’ primary care provider’s clinical notes were made available through the Blue Button feature of the MHV portal. While it is theorized that patient’s access their physician’s clinical notes may lead to empowerment, Veterans may be confused by this documentation given the hard-to-comprehend medical abbreviations and Jargon. We are developing an innovative system called NoteAid which links medical abbreviations and jargon to consumer-oriented terms, definitions, and educational materials in effort to improve the patient’s comprehension, helping Veterans comprehend their own clinical notes to improve self-management of care and health care outcomes.
The target audience beginners and experts using natural language processing, health communication, and MyHealtheVet (MHV) and Blue Button?
