Patient understandable clinical narratives

It is a growing desire for patients to be able to understand their health conditions, diagnosis and prognosis. Practitioners need to use very technical jargons and domain specific vocabulary to ensure preciseness. This makes the documentation opaque and very difficult to understand for the patients. We created a dictionary of medical jargons and abbreviations for specific domains in healthcare leveraging existing documentation. Parsed the clinical narratives, and used NLP to ensure the grammatical correctness of the simplified narrative.
