Chinese medicine often uses natural language to describe disease symptoms, resulting in inconsistent symptom naming, affecting data mining analysis and clinical efficacy evaluation results. This study sorted out the terms of epilepsy symptoms by core symptom extraction, compound symptom resolution, semantic induction and semantic class method. The disease diagnosis terminology is compiled with reference to the International classification of Disease-Eleven Edition (ICD-11) Codes. Refer to the Pharmacopoeia of the people’s republic of china to regulate the name of the Chinese medicine. The terminology for evaluation of efficacy is classified according to “healing”, “improving” and “unhealing”. The Standardized data can be used for data mining analysis.
