Applying deep learning on electronic health records in Swedish to predict healthcare-associated infections
2016 (English)In: Workshop on Biomedical Natural Language Processing, Association for Computational Linguistics , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
Detecting healthcare-associated infections pose a major challenge in healthcare. Us- ing natural language processing and ma- chine learning applied on electronic pa- tient records is one approach that has been shown to work. However the results indi- cate that there was room for improvement and therefore we have applied deep learn- ing methods. Specifically we implemented a network of stacked sparse auto encoders and a network of stacked restricted Boltz- mann machines. Our best results were ob- tained using the stacked restricted Boltz- mann machines with a precision of 0.79 and a recall of 0.88.
