Concept Map for Clinical Recommendations Data and Knowledge Structuring

Giyzel Shakhmametova, Nafisa Yusupova, Rustem Zulkarneev, Yevgeniy Khudoba

Abstract: The article deals with the problem of structuring medical texts of clinical recommendations, which are unstructured texts. A review of existing solutions in the field of analysis of unstructured texts of both non-specialized and medical nature was carried out, shortcomings of existing developments were identified, the need for a new software solution for structuring clinical recommendations was revealed, which, in turn, is demanded in clinical decision support systems. The method of structuring data and knowledge of clinical recommendations is described, as well as the general structure of the solution, as along with the process of forming a map of concepts, including graphematic, morphological, syntactic and semantic analysis of text. In conclusion, the results of implementation in the form of concept map fragments are presented, on the basis of which further product rules are formed, which are suitable for use in knowledge bases. The method is universal and can be applied to any clinical recommendations texts.
