This paper describes a feature extraction technology from event sequence of lab tests in electronic health record (EHR) for modeling diabetic nephropathy. We used a stacked convolutional autoencoder which can extract both local and global temporal information from the event sequence. The extracted features can be interpreted as similarities to a small number of typical sequences of lab tests. The extracted features in our prototyping experiment were promising for understanding of the long-term course of the disease.
