BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making is calling for submissions to our Collection on Natural language processing in medical informatics. The collection welcomes original research on recent advancements in NLP techniques, pre-trained language models, and clinical question-answering systems. As well as the development and evaluation of NLP algorithms for clinical documentation, information extraction, and decision support using electronic health records and patient monitoring data. We encourage authors to explore novel applications of NLP in precision medicine, mental health analysis, and multilingual healthcare settings. Additionally, we invite researchers to delve into explainable NLP approaches that enhance transparency and interpretability, paving the way for safer and more reliable clinical decision-making.
