Narendra Kumar 1 1 MCA Department, Associate Professor, KBN College, Vijayawada, A.P. India, Abstract: This paper presents work that has been conducted towards predicting user input requirements with view to making an intelligent interface to support data input he principles are considered within the context of an on-line electronic medical record system where it is particularly valuable to have intelligent support. The intelligent interface involves the incremental data mining of existing records. The information mined from the data is used to predict current input requirements to improve, mong other things, the efficiency of data entered for that user. The useof temporal information in predicting requirements is explored using a case specific and a case independent approach which respectively involve maintaining histories of past treatments and abstracting intervals of problem duration to predict medication. The results show that the case specific approach is very useful although predictions are limited exactly to what has already been encountered in the patient history. The case independent approach is more useful and compares favorably with a simple cross sectional model. Further work is suggested to investigate incremental temporal data mining. 1. INTRODUCTION This paper explores how data mining may be used to model user input requirements subsequently using the model in an intelligent interface to support data entry. This is especially relevant in on-line record systems and is explored in the context of an electronic medical record system. The paper is significant in the incremental nature of the proposed data mining technique (since data mining is used to model the requirements of a particular user as they develop over time) and also in the extraction of temporal information from the medical data itself, using the domain specific characteristics of various disease and medication progression. The application of data mining techniques to support data entry in the medical domain is also particularly important as the medical world has hardly begun to utilize technology. Enabling efficient, accurate creation of medical records is just one way that medicine can benefit from technology. This paper explores two approaches to identifying and using temporal information in medical records to support the development of the treatment plan. The relationship between problem diagnosis and medication is used to predict a relevant drug therapy. Previous work has utilized past patterns of user interaction to derive a predictive data entry model [1], [2], [3] in a cross-sectional way. This work considers temporal data mining using both a case specific and case independent approach. The case specific approach uses an individual patient history to determine what the input requirements might be during another visit of the same patient. The case independent approach involves abstracting problem intervals from individual visits and predicting the medication from this interval based data. This paper first considers the way that data mining techniques have been used to build models that assist with predicting data entry requirements (2) particularly mentioning a non-temporal statistical analysis used to predict data entry requirements in echo cardiography. Following this the temporal information in general purpose clinical data is considered (3) and experiments interface might be realized in an electronic medical record described to describe how temporal information within the data itself has been used to derive a temporal model (4). Subsequently the question of intelligent interfaces are considered (5) and the particular way that the intelligent system (6) before concluding (7) with some suggestions for further work that will augment the temporal data analysis.

2 2 International Journal of Hybrid Computational Intelligence 2. DATA-MINED MODELS TO ANTICIPATE INPUT REQUIREMENTS Data mining includes a variety of techniques. Some of these techniques have already been applied to the anticipation of user input requirements. In particular rule induction, artificial neural networks and some statistical models have been utilized. However none of these models utilize the temporal component of the data as is considered in this paper and none suggest using incremental data mining as the input examples are built up in the database. Hermens and Schlimmer [4] demonstrated how rule induction may be used to assist on-line form filling. The rules are automatically induced from the data and relate different items on the form. From these rules it is possible to predict the user s probable preferences in input. Test results demonstrated that nearly 90% of the entries on the form were correctly predicted and there was an 87% saving in keystroke effort. The artificial neural network has also been used to help the user complete a task when using the Unix operating system. Typically there are many different ways to complete the task and some set of optimal commands. Eberts et al [5] demonstrated that the artificial neural network can be used to associate system commands with user tasks. After having learnt the optimal associations user help could be provided to make interactions more efficient. This model also went beyond simply predicting what the input requirements were and extended to anticipating what the optimal set of might be. Conventional statistical models have also been used to help predict input items. Canfield [12] has considered how frequencies derived from associations in medical data can be used to prime intelligent menus in the echocardiography domain. Canfield was particularly concerned with how the model predictions would be utilized to measure the improvement in input effort. The work explored a number of different types of menu including the intelligent split, alphabetical list and categorical lists. The intelligent split is organized so that the top few items are ordered according to potential relevance in the context while the remaining portion of the list is in alphabetical order. The contents of the intelligent portion will change according to context. In terms of data entry effort Canfield compared the intelligent menu, the alphabetical menu and the intelligent split determining that the intelligent menu was actually 5.5 times faster in terms of data entry than the alphabetical menu while the intelligent split was only 4.5 times faster. However users preferred the intelligent split menu (perhaps because of the consistency of the alphabetical portion combined with the variability of the top portion adapting according to context). This result supports that found by Sears and Schneiderman [6] who investigated user preference between alphabetical menus and frequency lists. They found that users preferred a combination in the intelligent split menu. Previous work by the authors has extended the investigations made by Canfield by broadening the investigation to the general practice medical domain [1], [2] considering both the anticipation of treatment from diagnosis and diagnosis from symptoms. The work also considered a variety of statistical models [3] where the predictive power of conditional probabilities, multiple linear regression and discriminant analysis were compared in the context of predicting a treatment from a diagnosis. The model was employed in a recognition process where the predicted items were placed in the hotlist of an intelligent split menu. 3. TEMPORAL INFORMATION IN CLINICAL DATA The existence and use of temporal information has been noted in many areas and medicine is one particular domain where such information is particularly useful. Temporal modeling has been explored to support both medical expert systems [7] and to assist in electronic medical record systems [8]. It has chiefly been used in the management of data and its display rather than in clinical data entry. Additionally the type of data typically tends to be results from specific laboratory measurements rather than the general variety of data that is encountered in general practice medicine. Data from general practice typically consists of a number of qualitative measurements for diagnoses, symptoms and treatments for each visit of a patient rather than specific readings of laboratory tests. The temporal component of general practice medicine poses a particular challenge since the data might reflect a series of independent unrelated visits (with different symptoms, diagnoses and treatments) perhaps many months apart or be related to an on-going condition, perhaps extending over years, or possibly over days. As far as temporal modeling is concerned the interval is an important model of time contrasting

3 The Intelligent Interface for On-Line Electronic Medical Records Using Temporal Data Mining 3 to the point. The interval extends between and perhaps over time points. As with the point the interval might be relative (e.g. to the first visit or first diagnosis of problem) or absolute (e.g. measurement is absolute between particular days in the year). The interval is an important piece of information particularly in general practice medicine where not only the set of symptoms, diagnoses and treatments at a given visit are of interest but also those in the history. In particular a treatment might be prescribed at one visit which still continues when the next visit occurs; however, it might not specifically be mentioned again because it is not being prescribed at that visit. The problem might even be persisting although the patient has gone for another unrelated reason and this is the reason that is recorded. Considering the patient visits as isolated events potentially looses the most persistent problems within a patient s experience and the most frequently prescribed (and re prescribed) drugs for individuals. The temporal abstraction of time-oriented clinical data has been considered in a variety of medical contexts. Temporal abstraction is the task of abstracting high-level, interval-based concepts from time-stamped data [17]. In the context of clinical data from general practice records abstraction would involve deriving an interval for a particular problem or treatment or symptom. The interval might be relative (e.g. between visits 3 and 5) or absolute (e.g. over 5 months). This paper proposes to utilize the temporal information within the clinical data by making use of a case specific and a case independent data mining analysis. The case specific analysis will simply utilize the patient s history in order to determine appropriate treatment patterns. The case-wise frequency of medications will be the most significant factor in determining future input requirements. The case independent analysis will make a temporal abstraction of problem intervals upon which predictions of medication are based. This is independent of any particular medical case. 4. METHOD AND RESULTS 4.1. The Data A database of 3085 records collected over a 1 year period was obtained from a general practice in South Australia which used an electronic form of record note keeping. The note keeping system accepts textual notes for a given patient including a locally used problem code and a treatment. The anonymity of the records was respected and information extracted from the record solely for the purpose of modeling the relationship between problem diagnosis and treatment. Of the various types of treatment that are possible the prescription of medication was actually modeled. There were 352 different problem codes utilized in the records out of some 500 codes available in the scheme employed and some 466 different drug keywords identified in the treatment field. Some of these drug keywords were generic names and some were brandnames. A manual mapping of brandname to generic name was made, correcting for typing errors, resulting in 370 generic drug names. The task was to explore the relationships in existence between the 352 problems and the 370 generic drugs The Method of Analysis Data was divided into training and test sets. The training set was used to build a predictive model of drugs from problem codes. The test set was effectively unseen data that could be used to evaluate how well the model generalized and predicted the drug prescriptions of new problem combinations. Two different methods of deriving a model from the training data were considered being the case specific and case-independent analysis. Table 1 Training and Test Set Composition Number of No. of cases No. of cases in patient visits in test set(n) the training set test set(n) n = 1 visits n = 2 visits n = 3 visits n =4 visits n =5 visits n =6 visits n =7 visits n = 8 visits n =9 visits n =10 visits n =11 visits n =12 visits n =13 visits n =14 visits n =15 visits Testing involved measuring certain aspects of performance for the model. A hit-rate was computed involving a ratio of the number of drugs that were actually predicted and required over all those that

4 4 International Journal of Hybrid Computational Intelligence should have been predicted. Hit-rates were determined using up to 30 drug predictions of a model. With 15 predictions under consideration the model effectively has up to 15 chances to make an accurate prediction. A range is considered rather than just the first drug because there are occasions when there should be several candidate drugs and ideally the model will predict them. While the topmost predictions might be valuable if the model were used togenerate an intelligent menu, even later predictions might be valuable in disambiguating vocal or handwritten input. The database of 3085 cases from 800 patients was divided up into 15 training and test sets. Each training set consisted of records from patients who had n visits (from n = 2 to n = 16). The most recent visit is always excluded from the training set to be part of the test set. Thefrequency of number of patients in each set and the actual size of that training set is presented in Table Case Independent Temporal Analysis Case independent temporal analysis aims to build a general model from the data. There are a number of ways that this might be done. The approach taken here utilizes a form of temporal abstraction to infer a range of problem duration from a set of visits. Temporal abstraction involved identifying those problems that occurred more than once in a patient history and making an interval by noting the first and last occurrence of a problem. The inferred range of problem duration is used to modify the co-occurrences between problem and drugs. The problem is assumed to be present in the whole interval and the co occurrences with drugs consequently altered. The modified co-occurrences between problems and drugs are then used to derive a temporally abstracted probability model. The temporally abstracted probability model was compared with a non-abstracted probability model for the same training and test data. The difference in hit-rates was computed for patients with n = 2 to n = 16 visits. This was done for upto 12 model predictions. A negative difference between the hit-rates suggests that the temporally abstracted probabilities produced better results. A difference of zero occurs when n = 2 visits for a patient since the historic data contains just 1 case from the patient and there can be no temporal abstraction over just 1 case. The average difference in hit-rate for predictions 1 to 6 was computed and compared with the average difference in hit-rate for predictions 7 to 15. Figure 2 plots the difference in hit-rate between the models for each of the training sets (n=2 visit to n=16 visits). Temporal abstraction does not make an improvement when the top few model predictions are considered (i.e. the top 6 predictions) however, there is evidence of some improvement when the second best predictions are considered (i.e. 7 to 15). In particular this occurs when temporal abstraction is made for patients who have more than one visit per month. For patients with a large number of visits there is even an improvement in hit-rate for the top model predictions. The actual scale of the improvements are in the order of 5%. It is possible that patients with many visits within the year typically have persistent problems (where inferring the interval is particularly valid) Case Specific Temporal Analysis The second experiment in examining the temporal component of the data considered case specific temporal analysis. The approach uses patient history as the means by which the drug predictions are made. The frequency with which a drug has been prescribed to a patient in the past is used to predict what should be prescribed at a given visit. In particular patients who had 8 visits are considered and for each a simple patient history list is maintained of the treatments that they had been prescribed for the previous 7 visits. A comparison was made directly with the hit-rates that were achieved for the case independent temporal model in the temporally abstracted probabilities and both temporal models compared with the crosssectional probability model. 5. INTELLIGENT INTERFACES In this work the intelligent interface is defined as an interface in the most general sense between the user and the computer system encompassing conventional windows-based keyboard and mouse workstations, penbased notebook computing, voice recognition, handwriting interpretation and other nonconventional forms of interaction. The interface might be necessary for a number of tasks ranging from entering information to an on-line database, posing a query into a knowledge-base or selecting menu options to navigate through a program. Some features of intelligent interfaces include the following: (1) the intelligent interface is designed to account for differences between the input

5 The Intelligent Interface for On-Line Electronic Medical Records Using Temporal Data Mining 5 requirements of users, anticipating those requirements and making data entry more accurate and efficient. An interface may be tailored to a particular task, particular users or groups of users. (2) the intelligence of the interface is gained from a model that is automatically derived from system usage that is encountered. The model is a predictive model of what the input requirements will be in a given context. (3) the model may be rederived over time. (4) the model may be exploited in a variety of ways to assist input including context sensitive menu generation, keyword completion during typing, disambiguation in on-line handwriting and voice recognition, instantiation of default entries and provision of recommendations for particular input combinations to support the user with a given task. 6. CONCLUSIONS This paper has considered the task and important problem of making data entry more efficient particularly in the context of on-line record systems with electronic medical record systems being the chosen information system. The interface may encompass many forms of interaction such as pen-based computing, voice recognition, handwriting analysis or windows-based computing. The intelligent interface emphasizes making data entry efficient in the various contexts in which input might occur. In particular that data entry is efficient in a given context for a given user, rather than for a user with a given level of competency (as happens with the adaptive interface). Importantly the intelligence of the interface is gained from a data mined model that is incrementally re-derived over time. The model may be exploited to assist with input in both recognition tasks (e.g. menu selection) and generation tasks (e.g. keyword completion). This work also identified that the temporal aspects of data are important to consider particularly in applications such as on-line medical records where there is a longitudinal component to the data. The temporal information content of the data was investigated in two main ways being case specific and case independent approaches. The case specific approach involved the utilization of simple patient history to predict (for individual patients) what the possible drug treatments might be. This technique gives the best predictive power measured by hit-rate for the top model predictions although is not particularly suitable for new patients who have no history because it cannot generalize beyond what has already been encountered. The case independent approach utilized the idea of temporally abstracting the data to infer a range of problem duration based upon isolated occurrences of problems within a patient history. This range of problem duration was then used to derive a probability model that was modified according to the information introduced by the abstraction. The approach is more general than the case specific approach and compares favorably with the probability model with some slight improvement in patients who have long visit sequences (that suggest a particularly persistent problem where the inference of a continuing interval is valuable). Finally further work is suggested that will continue to explore the temporal information content of the data, particularly focusing upon extending temporal abstraction to make inferences over absolute measures of time (rather than visits), to infer ranges of drug treatment and the integration of the results from case specific and case independent approaches. The resulting model will ideally contain greater predictive power than a simple crosssectional model of input requirements and shall be of value in the intelligent interface. Particularly in an intelligent interface for creating electronic medical records. REFERENCES [1] Spenceley S. E., Warren J. R., Mudali S.
