Abstract:

One of the tasks a Clinical Decision Support CDS system is designed to solve is retrieving the most relevant and actionable literature for a given medical case report. In this work, we present a query reformulation approach that addresses the unique formulation of case reports, making them suitable to be used on a general purpose search engine. Furthermore, we introduce five reranking algorithms designed to re-order a list of retrieved literature to better match the type of information needed for each case report.
