I'm new to NLP and recently read about a package sciSpacy which is used to process bio-medical text. I looked online for medical prescription datasets but couldn't find anything. I was wondering if there are any such datasets available online, preferably in image format, so that I can use OCR to extract relevant details like symptoms or diagnosis? Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • Welcome to Stackexchange. So are you interested in training an algorithm for that? And do you want to use Spacy for that? For learning purposes? BTW all real-world-data sets that include prescription data already have that coded to some vocabulary like ICD10 codes and WHO’s Drug Dictionary or ATC codes.
