QuickUMLS (Soldaini and Goharian, 2016) is a tool for fast, unsupervised biomedical concept extraction from medical text. It takes advantage of Simstring (Okazaki and Tsujii, 2010) for approximate string matching. For more details on how QuickUMLS works, we remand to our paper.
The detailed instuctions on downloading, installing and using QuickUMLS can be found on the QuickUMLS Github repository.
