This paper presents the results of task 3 of the ShARe/CLEF eHealth Evaluation Lab 2014. This evaluation lab focuses on improving access to medical information on the web. The task objective was to investigate the effect of using additional information such as a related discharge summary and external resources such as medical ontologies on the IR effectiveness, in a monolingual and in a multilingual context. The participants were allowed to submit up to seven runs for each language, one mandatory run using no additional information or external resources, and three each using or not using discharge summaries.
