Description This paper deals with data mining from free-form text electronic health records both from global perspective and with specific application to Slavic languages. It introduces the reader to the promises and challenges of this enterprise and provides a short overview of the global state of the art and of the general absence of this kind of research in Central European Slavic languages. It describes pl_ehr_cardio, a new corpus of Polish health records with 18 years’ worth of medical text. This paper marks the beginning of a pioneering research project in medical text data mining in Central European Slavic languages.
