A Hierarchical Approach for Automated ICD-10 Coding Using Phrase-level Attention

Clinical coding is the task of assigning a set of alphanumeric codes, referred to as ICD, to a medical event based on the context captured in a clinical narrative. The latest version of ICD, ICD-10, includes more than 70,000 codes.
