Classify health injuries to ICD-10 codes with IBM Watson Natural Language Classifier

DISCLAIMER: This application is used for demonstrative and illustrative purposes only and does not constitute an offering that has gone through regulatory review.

Steve Martinelli, an Engineering Manager @ IBM, uses Watson’s Natural Language Classifier service to classify health injuries using ICD-10 codes.

This is a Python web application based on the Flask microframework and is based on earlier work done by Ryan Anderson. It uses the Watson Python SDK to create the classifier, list classifiers, and classify the input text. We make use of the free ICD-10 API which, given an ICD-10 code, returns a name and description.
