> There will be a discussion of the use cases studied in the Clinical
> Observations Interoperability HCLS task force today at 15:00 EDT
> (21:00 CDT, 12:00 PDT). Interested members of HCLS are invited.
> The COI task force is exploring the use of RDF mapping technologies to
> ease data interoperability problems within and between health care and
> clinical trials. Both ares require the recording of a patient's vital
> signs, disease states, diagnoses, medications/treatments, etc.
> A couple voiced goals are to:
>   1 convince hospitals and clinics to use RDF as a data or at least
>     exchange format.
>   2 develop and recommend ontologies
> So far, we have part of a Clinical Practices Ontology (CPO), based on
> an expression of CDISC SDTM in RDF, and a Clinical Trials Ontology
> (CTO), similarly derived from HL7/RIM. Cleveland Clinic has an
> ontology called CPR which is built from scratch in RDF/OWL.
> The predominant use case involves expressing a hospital's diabetes
> patient database as RDF, in CPO, and expressing clinical trial
> protocols as SPARQL queries on CTO. The mapping between CPO and CTO is
> being written in n3
> http://esw.w3.org/topic/HCLS/ClinicalObservationsInteroperabil
> ity/InterOntologyMapping.html
> and has been tested by executing CTO queries on the CPO data:
>   http://www.w3.org/2008/04/DiabeticPatientsDataSet/end-to-end
> The Cleveland Clinic CPR ontology aligns fairly well with the CTO
> ontology. One perspective is that we could invest our time developing
> the CPR and cherry-picking terms and classes from it to flush out the
> CTO. The counter argument is that the community will be less motivated
> by mapping successes if one side of the map is to CPR, rather than an
> ontology based on the more familliar SDTM.
> Come to the meeting and discuss this and you may win one of our
> fabulous door prizes.
