Word cloud of notes w/ Barry Levine and Ryan Eshleman
  • Screencast presentation
  • Questions
  • It appears to handle misspellings – e.g., "insuffiencey" (sic) – is that by design?
  • A  benefit of not relying entirely on the Concept Dictionary for string matching and having the additional machine learning step is that it can find information that is misspelled as well.
  • Have you done anything to handle negation (e.g. "rule out")?
  • Not yet
  • I noticed some key concept at the end of the sentence it has an extra space before putting the period (.).  Is it by design?
  • Just happened to be the case with the examples. It will work without this.
Migration to 2.0 and supporting 1.x w/ Rafal Korytkowski, Mark Goodrich, Mike Seaton <https://openmrs.atlassian.net/wiki/x/GylYAQ>
  • TODO - will need to reschedule this topic and make sure Rafal can lead the discussion
If time permits, discuss revamping / re-implementing the Patient Flags module on recent OpenMRS versions. Currently, the Patient Flags module
is compatible only with 1.6.x which is not supported anymore w/ Shreyans Sheth, Mark Goodrich
"Build it against a newer version of OpenMRS" means:
* check out the code
* change this line: https://github.com/openmrs/openmrs-module-patientflags/blob/master/pom.xml#L58 from "1.6.5" to "1.9.(something)"
* mvn clean install
