Stud Health Technol Inform. 2020 Jun 16;270:1335-1336. doi: 10.3233/SHTI200429.


A lexical method was used to map ICD-11 to the terminologies included in the HeTOP server. About half of ICD-11 codes (47.76%) were mapped to at least one concept. The developed tool reached a global precision of 0.98 and a recall of 0.66. Lexical methods are powerful methods to map health terminologies. Supervised and manual mapping is still necessary to complete the mapping.
