AMIA 2012: Developing An Ontology Of Nursing Care Coordination Using Nlp

ABSTRACT: We report early work to develop an ontology of nursing activities specific to care coordination. We employ NLP on nursing notes from 217 patients enrolled in Aging in Place (AIP) study that received enhanced care coordination and 717 patients enrolled in a traditional home healthcare (HHC) agency. The development of an ontology specific to care coordination is necessary to support the aims of the parent study1, which are to identify care coordination activities and dose for nursing visits.
