ICD 10 Codes
Clinical care guidelines recommend that newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients at high risk for metastatic spread receive a bone scan prior to treatment and that low risk patients not receive it. The objective was to develop an automated pipeline to interrogate heterogeneous data to evaluate the use of bone scans using a two different Natural Language Processing (NLP) approaches.
Depression accounts for substantial morbidity and mortality worldwide and risk of experiencing it may have a genetic component. Depressive disorders manifest along a gradient from mild to severe. Electronic health record (EHR) data linked to large, multi-site biobanks facilitate exploration of the genetic component of depression.
Described in this document are the Stanford University algorithms for extracting both cases and controls of digital rectal examination (DRE) from electronic health records (EHR) of prostate cancer patients. DRE is a clinical procedure, part of a set of quality metrics used to determine quality care for these patients. In this regard, DRE is defined as quality care when it is performed within a time period of up to six months before first treatment for prostate cancer. For the purposes of this algorithm a case is defined as DRE documented, whereas a control is DRE not documented.
Migraine is the most common recurrent headache syndrome in children in which 4-10% of school age children may be affected (1). It is characterized by episodes of headache pain that may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and light and sound sensitivity. Migraine occurs at all ages and may even begin in infancy as represented by intermittent colic (1). The genes for familial hemiplegic migraine have been identified.
Described in this document are the Stanford University algorithms for extracting both cases and controls of Multimodal analgesia from electronic health records (EHR) for surgical patients.
