Abstract

Identifying the time patterns from medical device adverse event reports can help clinical researchers or medical devices manufacturers to understand cause of events and predict future events. Ontology-based approaches can provide a reliable and effective system for representing both events and temporal relations, annotating the useful information from narratives, and querying and reasoning over the data. This paper discusses our vision on such a system, as well as challenges we encountered during our preliminary studies.
