Increasing Alertness while Coding Secondary Diagnostics in the Medical Record

Abstract

In order to measure the medical activity, hospitals are required to manually encode information concerning a patient’s stay using International Classification of Disease (ICD-10). This task is time consuming and requires substantial training for the staff. We propose to help by speeding up and facilitating the tedious task of coding patient information, specially while coding some secondary diagnostics that are not well described in the medical resources such as discharge letter and medical records. Our approach consists of building a decision tree out of big variety of inpatient stay information in particular, contextual information such as age, sex, diagnostic count and other related information, next figure out missing secondary diagnostics. The results are still preliminary, we identify some important information variables that can be interesting to verify while coding certain secondary diagnostics.
