Clinical notes are records that summarize the interaction between patients and healthcare providers, and are central to patient care. These may include notes from outpatient visits, inpatient admissions and discharges, procedures, protocols, and testing results. The process of documenting clinical care covers the diverse domains of patient care, clinical informatics, workflow, research and quality. As electronic health records (EHRs) are widely used by providers now, there is growing emphasis on structuring clinical notes to reuse data for subsequent tasks. However, generating clinical notes for an electronic record system is a challenging task.
