We are a health care agency and we have about 20 different key forms represented in our medical records. I have them all accessible as text in a SQL database and also as indexed text supporting faceted search (using Azure Search).
We've been exploring the use of custom NER labeling as a way to provide structure in our unstructured text. We have a variety of labeling schemas that we are interested in but are starting with suicide risk as the highest valued set of labels. We've focused on two of our 20 note types which are mostly free form text written by clinical staff. The project is showing signs of success (thank you spaCy and Prodigy!) and staff are asking if we can start labeling some of our assessment note types which are quite structured with small areas of free text entry - the opposite of the note types we started with.
The question I'm looking for help answering is how best to 'mask' form prompts so our NER custom labels don't label the form prompts but instead stay focused on the interspersed free clinical text.
I've searched the forum for clues and while I'm sure this has been asked before, I wasn't successful at finding the discussion. Any thoughts or links to prior threads would be welcomed.
