The (Im)possibilities of Natural Language Processing in Healthcare

The quality, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare are being threatened by personnel shortages, high administrative burden, and an ever-increasing demand for healthcare services. The recent introduction of large language models (LLMs) has led to enormous excitement within the healthcare community about their application in healthcare. The question arises if LLMs and other forms of NLP can live up to these expectations.

As part of my PhD, I have worked on several NLP projects within the LUMC, with the aim of integrating them in clinical practice. As I’m finalizing my dissertation, I reflect on the recent advancements in relation to the unruliness of healthcare practice, and what we need to go from paper to practice.
