Table 3 Summary Statistics from the Pack Year and Cessation Date Algorithms

From: Building a tobacco user registry by extracting multiple smoking behaviors from clinical notes

Annotation a) Pack years regular expression extraction Annotation b) Cessation date regular expression extraction
Sensitivity: 91.7%
Specificity: 95.2%
Sensitivity: 63.2%
Specificity: 94.6%
Pack year history found Pack year history not found Cessation date found Cessation date not found
Pack year history recorded 33 3 Cessation date recorded 12 7
No pack year history recorded 8 179 Cessation date not recorded 11 193
  1. Sensitivity, specificity, and crosstabulation of the annotation vs. the classification of a) the pack year algorithm and b) the cessation date algorithm
