Plan TL Award for the CodiEsp Track

The CodiEsp sub-tracks:

*1.CodiEsp Diagnosis Coding sub-task (CodiEsp-D)*: will require automatic ICD10-CM [CIE10 Diagnóstico] code assignment.

*2.CodiEsp Procedure Coding sub-task (CodiEsp-P):* will require automatic ICD10-PCS [CIE10 Procedimiento] code assignment.

*3.CodiEsp Explainable AI Subtask (CodiEsp-X).* Systems are required to submit the reference to the predicted codes (both ICD10-CM and ICD10-PCS).

*Task description*

Clinical coding consists in the transformation (or classification) of medical texts written by clinicians into a structured or coded format using internationally recognized class codes. These codes describe a patient’s diagnosis or treatment. This transformation is critical for standardizing clinical records; enable aetiology studies, monitor health trends, epidemiology studies, clinical research, decision-making or even re-imbursement.

Due to the importance of this process, there are now even specialized education programs and professional occupations of persons employed as clinical coders or medical records technicians.

As part of the eHealth CLEF (http://clef-ehealth.org) Multilingual Information Extraction Shared Task we organize* CodiEsp: Clinical Case Coding Task (http://temu.bsc.es/codiesp <http://temu.bsc.es/codiesp>). *This task will address the automatic extraction of chemical, drug, gene/protein mentions from clinical case studies written in Spanish.

Participant systems have to automatically assign ICD10 codes (CIE-10, in Spanish) to clinical case documents, being evaluated against manually generated ICD10 codifications.

In addition to the Spanish data we will also include training, development and test set documents automatically translated into English.

We foresee that this task will be influential not only in terms of determining the most competitive approaches which might range from sophisticated term look-up to multi-class document classification systems using machine learning approaches.
