This paper presents a new approach to processing and categorization of text from patient documents in Bulgarian language using Natural Language Processing and Edge AI. The proposed algorithm contains several phases - personal data anonymization, pre-processing and conversion of text to vectors, model training and recognition. The experimental results in terms of achieved accuracy are comparable with modern approaches.
