This year’s Multilingual Information Extraction (IE) task continues the growth path identified in previous year’s CLEF eHealth IE challenges. The 2020 task focuses on ICD coding for clinical textual data in Spanish. Coding also includes some textual evidence annotations. A subtask focuses on term mapping, which is now a crucial and pressing need. The terms considered are extracted from EHRs in Spanish and they are manually linked to HPO, ICD10 and SNOMED CT. These tasks can be treated as a named entity recognition and normalisation task, but also as a text classification task.
