Title: Utilizing Electronic Heath Records to Support Risk Prediction of Cardiovascular Diseases
Abstract: The presentation will introduce the recent research in Zhejiang University of China on Risk Assessment of Cardiovascular Diseases based on data mining techniques. The research are based on 15000 patient records collected from the hospital. The features are retrieved through Medical NLP techniques, the different risk prediction models have been used on the data, and the results have been evaluated and compared to the GRACE model which has been used in clinical practice now.
