Abstract

Privacy concerns have often served as an insurmountable barrier for the production of research and resources in clinical information retrieval (IR). We believe that both clinical IR research innovation and legitimate privacy concerns can be served by the creation of intra-institutional, fully protected resources. In this paper, we provide some principles and tools for IR resource-building in the unique problem setting of patient-level IR, following the tradition of the Cranfield paradigm.
