Paper summaryjoecohenThe basic approach is an RNN applied to text to predict a medical event such as an ICD code. It is unclear if the complicated Bi-RNN model is required.
This has some useful applications such as
- Adapt old databases
- Correct errors
- Upgrade ICD versions
A simple diagram of an RNN applied to medical next is shown below:
