Abstract
This open access book describes the results of natural language processing and machine learning methods applied to clinical text from electronic patient records. It is divided into twelve chapters. Chapters 1-4 discuss the history and background of the original paper-based patient records, their purpose, and how they are written and structured. These initial chapters do not require any technical or medical background knowledge. The remaining eight chapters are more technical in nature and describe various medical classifications and terminologies such as ICD diagnosis codes, SNOMED CT, MeSH, UMLS, and ATC. Chapters 5-10 cover basic tools for natural language processing and information retrieval, and how to apply them to clinical text. The difference between rule-based and machine learning-based methods, as well as between supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods, are also explained. Next, ethical concerns regarding the use of sensitive patient records for research purposes are discussed, including methods for de-identifying electronic patient records and safely storing patient records. The book’s closing chapters present a number of applications in clinical text mining and summarise the lessons learned from the previous chapters. The book provides a comprehensive overview of technical issues arising in clinical text mining, and offers a valuable guide for advanced students in health informatics, computational linguistics, and information retrieval, and for researchers entering these fields.

Abstract
This open access book presents an ethical approach to utilizing personal medical data. It features essays that combine academic argument with practical application of ethical principles. The contributors are experts in ethics and law. They address the challenges in the re-use of medical data of the deceased on a voluntary basis. This pioneering study looks at the many factors involved when individuals and organizations wish to share information for research, policy-making, and humanitarian purposes. Today, it is easy to donate blood or even organs, but it is virtually impossible to donate one’s own medical data. This is seen as ethically unacceptable. Yet, data donation can greatly benefit the welfare of our societies. This collection provides timely interdisciplinary research on biomedical big data. Topics include the ethics of data donation, the legal and regulatory challenges, and the current and future collaborations. Readers will learn about the ethical and regulatory challenges associated with medical data donations. They will also better understand the special nature of using deceased data for research purposes with regard to ethical principles of autonomy, beneficence, and justice. In addition, the contributors identify the key governance issues of such a scheme. The essays also look at what we can learn in terms of best practice from existing medical data schemes.

Abstract
This is the story of a simple idea (the mouth is part of the body) and what it means in the context of the complexities in healthcare organization, care delivery, provider education, and care reimbursement, along with recommendations. Integration of Medical and Dental Care and Patient Data seeks to optimize the delivery of healthcare by stating why isolated components of healthcare delivery need to work together, by asserting how health information technology (HIT) can help these components collaborate to improve care quality and patient safety, by documenting how existing barriers stand in way of interdisciplinary collaborative practice supported by HIT, and by recommending how to remove such barriers. The book will be of immense interest to all involved in the management of dental and medical informatics systems while providing illuminating instruction to dental professionals to help them understand the considerable challenges and extensive benefits of a cohesive electronic dental record.
Contents
1. Rationale and Need to Articulate Medical and Dental Data -- 2. HIT Considerations: Informatics and Technology Needs and Considerations -- 3. Metrics and Measurements -- 4. Broader Considerations of Medical and Dental Data Integration -- 5. International Perspectives -- 6. An Integrated Medical-Dental Electronic Health Record Environment: A Marshfield Experience -- 7. Conclusion and Recommendations.

Abstract
This book details how electronic health records (EHRs) and medical records (EMRs) can be optimized to enable meaningful interactions between provider and patient to enhance quality of care in this new era of mHealth. As the technologies evolve to provide greater opportunities for mHealth applications, so do the challenges. This book addresses the issues of interoperability limitations, data processing errors and patient data privacy while providing instruction on how blockchain-like processes can potentially ensure the integrity of an externally maintained EHR. Portable Health Records in a Mobile Society identifies important issues and promising solutions to create a truly portable EHRs. It is a valuable resource for all informaticians and healthcare providers seeking an up-to-date resource on how to improve the availability, reliability, integrity and sustainability of these revolutionary developments in healthcare management.
