INTRODUCTION: The German Emergency Department Medical Record (GEDMR) was created by medical domain experts and healthcare providers providing a dataset as well as a form. The trauma module of GEDMR was syntactically standardized using HL7 CDA and semantically standardized using different terminologies including SNOMED CT, LOINC and proprietary coding systems. This study depicts the mapping accuracy with aforementioned syntactical and semantical standards in general and especially the content coverage of SNOMED CT...

A standardized medical record for the emergency department (GEDMR) was released in Germany, but only sparsely and randomly implemented by emergency department (ED) electronic health record (EHR) vendors. A reason for this may be a lacking common language between the medical and the Health Information Technology (HIT) domain. HL7 clinical document architecture (CDA) may leverage this communication gap. This paper reports on the effects of a professional medical association record standard on EHR vendors and the German ED-EHR market...

OBJECTIVE: Technologically integrated healthcare environments can be realized if physicians are encouraged to use smart systems for the creation and sharing of knowledge used in clinical decision support systems (CDSS). While CDSSs are heading toward smart environments, they lack support for abstraction of technology-oriented knowledge from physicians. Therefore, abstraction in the form of a user-friendly and flexible authoring environment is required in order for physicians to create shareable and interoperable knowledge for CDSS workflows...

In oncology, the reuse of data is confronted with the heterogeneity of terminologies. It is necessary to semantically integrate these distinct terminologies. The semantic integration by using a third terminology as a support is a conventional approach for the integration of two terminologies that are not very structured. The aim of our study was to use SNOMED CT for integrating ICD-10 and ICD-O3. We used two complementary resources, mapping tables provided by SNOMED CT and the NCI Metathesaurus, in order to find mappings between ICD-10 or ICD-O3 concepts and SNOMED CT concepts...

BACKGROUND: Current clinical research and practice requires interoperability among systems in a complex and highly dynamic domain. There has been a significant effort in recent years to develop integrative common data models and domain terminologies. Such efforts have not completely solved the challenges associated with clinical data that are distributed among different and heterogeneous institutions with different systems to encode the information. Currently, when providing homogeneous interfaces to exploit clinical data, certain transformations still involve manual and time-consuming processes that could be automated...

OBJECTIVES: The burden of asthma ranks among the highest for chronic diseases. Interoperable EHRs can improve the management of chronic diseases such as asthma by facilitating sharing of data between health care settings along the continuum of care. Terminology such as SNOMED CT® (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine-Clinical Terms) and LOINC® (Logistical Observation Identifier Names and Codes) are prerequisites for interoperability of electronic health records (EHRs). We sought to determine the extent to which data elements in a validated asthma care map (ACM) are congruent with these terminologies...

BACKGROUND: End-of-life care (EOLC) relieves the suffering of millions of people around the globe each year. A growing body of hospice care research has led to the creation of several evidence-based clinical guidelines for EOLC. As evidence for the effectiveness of timely EOLC swells, so does the increased need for efficient information exchange between disciplines and across the care continuum. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using the Omaha System as a framework for encoding interoperable evidence-based EOL interventions with specified temporality for use across disciplines and settings...

OBJECTIVES: We propose an architecture for monitoring outpatients that relies on mobile technologies for acquiring data. The goal is to better control the onset of possible side effects between the scheduled visits at the clinic. METHODS: We analyze the architectural components required to ensure a high level of abstraction from data. Clinical practice guidelines were formalized with Alium, an authoring tool based on the PROforma language, using SNOMED-CT as a terminology standard...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) has been linked to Down syndrome (DS). OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Down syndrome patients have a higher prevalence of HS, and whether diagnosis of HS occurs at an earlier age. METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis in a population sample of 11,936 DS patients and 16,813,290 non-DS patients. The primary outcome was diagnosis of HS. SNOMED-CT terms were used to identify patients with DS and HS. We used logistic regression models and significant interaction terms to evaluate the relationship between DS and HS...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether disjoint partial-area taxonomy, a semantically-based evaluation methodology that has been successfully tested in SNOMED CT, will perform with similar effectiveness on Uberon, an anatomical ontology that belongs to a structurally similar family of ontologies as SNOMED CT. METHOD: A disjoint partial-area taxonomy was generated for Uberon. One hundred randomly selected test concepts that overlap between partial-areas were matched to a same size control sample of non-overlapping concepts...

Among different used healthcare terminology resources there is a need to link them to ease their interoperability. SNOMED CT is the most detailed clinical reference terminology for procedure used in the Electronic Health Record (EHR). WHO developed since 2006 an aggregated classification named ICHI required for statistics and resource allocation. It is based on an ontology framework defined in ISO 1828 named Categorial Structure (CAST) for surgical procedures. We present ICHI coding structure, ISO 1828 CAST standard for surgical procedures and SNOMED CT procedures hierarchy concept model and their relations...

BACKGROUND: It has been shown that the entities in everyday clinical text are often expressed in a way that varies from how they are expressed in the nomenclature. Owing to lots of synonyms, abbreviations, medical jargons or even misspellings in the daily used physician notes in clinical information system (CIS), the terminology without enough synonyms may not be adequately suitable for the task of Chinese clinical term recognition. METHODS: This paper demonstrates a validated system to retrieve the Chinese term of clinical finding (CTCF) from CIS and map them to the corresponding concepts of international clinical nomenclature, such as SNOMED CT...

OBJECTIVES: Our main objective is to design a method of, and supporting software for, interactive correction and semantic annotation of narrative clinical reports, which would allow for their easier and less erroneous processing outside their original context: first, by physicians unfamiliar with the original language (and possibly also the source specialty), and second, by tools requiring structured information, such as decision-support systems. Our additional goal is to gain insights into the process of narrative report creation, including the errors and ambiguities arising therein, and also into the process of report annotation by clinical terms...

In Danish home care, multiple professions deliver services to citizens. FSIII is a national home care documentation standard, where one of the goals is to share documentation to improve coordination between these professional groups and avoid double documentation. The aim of this study was to develop a SNOMED-CT based navigation hierarchy to ensure that professions could preserve their documentation practice, to help avoid double documentation, and to ensure that the technical implementation did not require sophisticated semantic tools...
