- An administrative tool (cTAKES GUI) that will allow users to specify the input DataSource of the note(s), the output of the notes(s), and the NLP pipeline to be used. The cTAKES GUI will be designed to be a web interface (packaged a war file to be easily deployed to standard servlet containers such as Tomcat). The configuration information will be stored and could be reused for future experiments. The output in this case will be specially formatted in the observation_fact format.
- An interface for users to query the extracted data. We plan to reuse the existing i2b2 web client tool by adding an 'NLP' ontology which contains all of the concepts that could be used to filter and joined with other ontologies such as demographics or codified data.
