Pain is a significant public health problem, affecting an estimated 100 million Americans. Evidence has highlighted that patients with chronic pain often suffer from deficits in pain care quality (PCQ). Efforts to improve PCQ hinge on the identification of reliable PCQ indicators such as pain assessment. In this study, we developed a classifier that leverages narratives in clinical notes to derive indicators of pain assessment for patients with chronic pain.
