Using Natural Language Processing to Enable In-Depth Analysis of Clinical Messages Posted to an Internet Mailing List
A Feasibility Study
We developed a workflow for finding a manageable number of clinically relevant messages from a much larger corpus of messages posted to an Internet mailing list. Our procedures enable labor-intensive content analyses by retrieving a set of messages tailored to the research question of a qualitative research team.
