Abstract: 

Sources of admission and discharge destinations are of interest in the analysis of repeat hospitalizations and survival. When coded information is not available, locations can be extracted from discharge summaries. We used a dependency parser and a Medicare-based dictionary of admission and discharge locations to extract and code the source and destination locations. The extraction results were deemed appropriate for inclusion in our ongoing survival analysis.
