Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Health care
  • Statistics

William R. Hersh mostly deals with Information retrieval, Health care, Health informatics, Data science and Test. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Information retrieval, Image retrieval and Automatic image annotation is strongly linked to Task. His Health care study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychological intervention and Family medicine.

His Health informatics research integrates issues from Medical record, Public health informatics, Engineering ethics and Biomedicine. The concepts of his Data science study are interwoven with issues in Research design, Engineering informatics, Workflow and Biomedical text mining. His Test study combines topics in areas such as Ranking, Vector space model, Weighting and Batch processing.

His most cited work include:

  • OHSUMED: an interactive retrieval evaluation and new large test collection for research (735 citations)
  • A survey of current work in biomedical text mining (639 citations)
  • Caveats for the use of operational electronic health record data in comparative effectiveness research. (289 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Information retrieval, Health informatics, Medical education, Health care and Data science. The various areas that William R. Hersh examines in his Information retrieval study include Test, Task and Image retrieval. His study in Health informatics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Knowledge management, Public health informatics and Curriculum.

Health care is closely attributed to Public health in his work. William R. Hersh works mostly in the field of Health Administration Informatics, limiting it down to topics relating to Health information technology and, in certain cases, Workforce, as a part of the same area of interest. His studies deal with areas such as Precision and recall and Unified Medical Language System as well as Search engine indexing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Information retrieval (40.48%)
  • Health informatics (20.00%)
  • Medical education (13.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Information retrieval (40.48%)
  • Medical education (13.57%)
  • Test (7.62%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Information retrieval, Medical education, Test, Health informatics and Health care. His work on Relevance as part of general Information retrieval study is frequently linked to Track, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Medical education study incorporates themes from Knowledge management and Curriculum.

His Test research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Task and Data science. The Health informatics study combines topics in areas such as Subspecialty, Engineering ethics and Graduate medical education. His work in Health care addresses subjects such as Public health, which are connected to disciplines such as Emergency department and Quality.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Outcomes From Health Information Exchange: Systematic Review and Future Research Needs. (65 citations)
  • Barriers and facilitators to exchanging health information: a systematic review. (63 citations)
  • Overview of the TREC 2015 Clinical Decision Support Track. (58 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics
  • Health care

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Information retrieval, Test, Nursing, Health informatics and Track. His study in the field of Relevance is also linked to topics like Extramural. William R. Hersh has included themes like Key, Task and Information needs in his Test study.

His Nursing research includes elements of Health care, Curriculum, Systematic review, Health information exchange and Experiential learning. His work on Public health informatics, Health Administration Informatics and Medicaid as part of general Health care study is frequently linked to Adjudication and Health informatics tools, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Health informatics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Health information technology and Medical education.
