Towards Enabling Emerging Named Entity Recognition as a Clinical Information and Argumentation Support

Abstract

In this paper we discuss the challenges of growing amounts of clinical literature for medical staff. We introduce our concepts emerging Named Entity (eNE) and emerging Named Entity Recognition (eNER) and show the results of an empirical study on the incidence of eNEs in the PubMed document set, which is the main contribution of this article. We discuss how emerging Named Entities can be used for Argumentation Support, Information Retrieval (IR) Support and Trend Analysis in Clinical Virtual Research Environments (VREs) dealing with large amounts of medical literature. Based on the empirical study and the discussion we derive use cases and a data science and user-feedback based architecture for the detection and the use of eNEs for IR and Argumentation Support in clinical VREs, like the related project RecomRatio.
