In this paper we provide an overview of the fifth edition of the CLEF
eHealth evaluation lab. CLEF eHealth 2017 continues our evaluation
resource building efforts around the easing and support of patients,
their next-of-kins, clinical staff, and health scientists in
understanding, accessing, and authoring eHealth information in a
multilingual setting. This year’s lab offered three tasks: Task 1 on
multilingual information extraction to extend from last year’s task on
French corpora, Task 2 on technologically assisted reviews in empirical
medicine as a new pilot task, and Task 3 on patient-centered information
retrieval (IR) building on the 2013-16 IR tasks. In total 32 teams took
part in these tasks (11 in Task 1, 14 in Task 2, and 7 in Task 3). We
also continued the replication track from 2016. Herein, we describe the
resources created for these tasks, evaluation methodology adopted and
provide a brief summary of participants of this year’s challenges and
results obtained. As in previous years, the organizers have made data
and tools associated with the lab tasks available for future research
and development.
