|A unique identifier for each term extracted from a note.
|A foreign key to the Note table note the term was extracted from.
|A foreign key to the predefined Concept in the Standardized Vocabularies representing the section of the extracted term.
|A small window of text surrounding the term.
|Character offset of the extracted term in the input note.

|Term_exists is defined as a flag that indicates if the patient actually has or had the condition. Any of the following modifiers would make Term_exists false: Negation = true; Subject = [anything other than the patient]; Conditional = true; Rule_out = true; Uncertain = very low certainty or any lower certainties. A complete lack of modifiers would make Term_exists true. For the modifiers that are there, they would have to have these values: Negation = false; Subject = patient; Conditional = false; Rule_out = false; Uncertain = true or high or moderate or even low (could argue about low).
|Term_temporal is to indicate if a condition is “present” or just in the “past”. The following would be past: History = true; Concept_date = anything before the time of the report.
|Describes compactly all the modifiers extracted by nlp system. For example, “son has rash” → “negated=no,subject=family,certainty=undef,conditional=false,general=false”. Value will be saved as one of the modifiers.
