There are many barriers to developing NLP algorithms for clinical text and to applying NLP to clinical tasks. At UCSD, we are addressing some of the barriers through development of shared resources to assist developers in annotating text and evaluating NLP annotations. We are also developing shared resources to assist potential users of NLP in developing knowledge bases for particular clinical problems, in customizing NLP applications, and in visualizing the output of NLP annotations for clinical research and decision support. I will describe the Information Extraction and Visualization Toolkit (IE-Viz) we are developing to aid non-NLP experts in application of NLP to clinical tasks.
