The ShARe/CLEF eHealth Evaluation Lab is a set of three shared tasks 
focused on interface design, natural language processing and information 
retrieval for clinical care.

The tasks are open to all registered lab participants. Please refer to 
the website for detailed information: http://clefehealth2014.dcu.ie/.

The vision for the ShARe/CLEF eHealth Evaluation Lab is two-fold: (1) to 
develop tasks that potentially impact patient understanding of medical 
information and (2) to provide the community with an increasingly 
sophisticated dataset of clinical narrative to advance the 
state-of-the-art in information visualisation, natural language 
processing, information extraction and information retrieval in healthcare.
