        CMedTEX is a rule-based temporal expression extraction and normalization system for Chinese electronic medical records, which can identify four types of temporal expressions (Date, Time, Duration and Frequency) and normalize the value to standard format (as TIMEX3). Evaluation on the independent manually annotated  Chinese clinical set (include 1,778 records) shows that our system achieves a precision of 90.83%, a recall of 96.11% and an F-score of 93.40% on TE extraction, and an accuracy of 92.58% on TE normalization under exact-match criterion, which are promising.

      There is a online demon system of CMedTEX tool at:
