Hi Amal,

If I am right, the grouping of related information together is not yet

Also to generate output in a structured format, you can make use of HTMLWriter. 
For more detailed info on this, you can check out Sean’s response for “Output 
formats - CPE - cTAKES - Persist in

Thanks & Regards

Hi Amal,

Could you please provide a full example sentence with expected vs. produced 
output? ctakes isn't perfect but something like "fever" should be tagged.
