VUMC Natural Language Processing Support Services Core

 

The Natural Language Processing Support Services Core (NLPSSC) offers services in support of the implementation and use of NLP for research and operational projects.  We currently offer the following services:

Information Extraction
Extraction of structured information from clinical notes for downstream inclusion in NLP pipelines or other methods and/or tools.

Corpus Preparation
Clinical notes available from existing EHRs can often have multiple artifacts because of their source, formatting, storage constraints, etc.  NLPSSC can help extract a corpus based on a cohort definition or other criteria for downstream use.

Model Development and Tuning
Feature development and/or construction of parametric or non-parametric machine learning and deep learning models for NLP pipelines or inclusion in other methods.

Method Execution and Reporting
Management of execution of tools or pre-defined methods against a corpus within a Windows or Linux environment.

Data Science and Analytics
Algorithm development, data analytics, visualizations, and reporting to provide up-stream and down-stream support for NLP methods.

Pipeline and Interface Development
Development service to provide effort in construction of one or more parts of an NLP pipeline as well as support interaction with NLP methods in a broad range of tool and method development.

Methods Collaboration
Participating in design and implementation of novel methods and tools to support research within NLP.
