Abstract: There is a growing need for automated methods to better synthesize patient data from electronic health records (EHRs) and reduce the cognitive burden in clinical decision-making process for providers. In this study, we describe our effort to create a semantic textual similarity (STS) resource consisting of sentence pairs from clinical notes with semantic similarity assigned by clinical experts.
