"We conducted two women’s health research studies to assess factors associated with hysterectomy surgical route and a surgical technique ‘power morcellation’, as well as patient outcomes for women with benign conditions and leiomyosarcoma. Most of the variables for our analyses were readily available from our robust electronic databases. However, uterine weight, estimated blood loss (EBL), and use of power morcellation are unstructured data available only in the pathology reports and the operative notes. In mid-2014, we were offered the opportunity to participate in a natural language processing workshop hosted by Linguamatics."
