Description [[HasToolDescription::MedEx-UIMA is an open source tool for extracting medication and signature information from clinical text. It is a Java implementation of the existing (Python) MedEx system, and is based on the UIMA framework. Using the UIMA framework, we re-built the MedEx in Java as a pipeline-based system, where we defined modules including Sentence Boundary Detector, Tokenizer, Section Tagger, Semantic Tagger, Parser and Encoder. The encoder is a new component in MedEx-UIMA, which maps drug name, dose, and form information to most specific RxNorm concepts and normalizes frequency information to TIMEX3 format.]]
