Dear Rachel and Landen,


Following up from the Clinical Observations Interoperability Telcon two weeks ago, I do think your presentations where very interesting. From my perspective working in early clinical development within AstraZeneca I do think  <http://esw.w3.org/topic/HCLS/OntologyTaskForce/BIONTDSEDCM?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=W3C-BIONTDSEDCM-08-28-07.ppt> Landen's slide 10  (secondary use) point out where why we all have a common interest to get the interoperability in place.


I like your proposal Rachel to use patient recruitment as use case for this activity. Patient recruitment is a major challenge for us and I guess most pharma companies. It fits well with the future desire to get a better "Real Life" picture of our health care environment. With better information at hand we would understand patient requirements, diseases, etc. much better. This understanding are important for health care providers, pharma companies, health organizations, disease registries, safety organizations etc.


Slide 10 represents in my mind this desire for a "Real Life" picture. To achieve this objective data interoperability is only one challenge of many, however if we in this activity can show how semantic web technologies have the potential to solve the interoperability issue, we will create good conditions for this to become a reality!


AstraZeneca participate in "Electronic Medical Record Task Force 2007 - EU region", a joint effort by European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) and EC. Within this task force the EHR are discussed in the context of enhancing clinical research for better health and high quality healthcare, i.e. well in line with slide 10.


In other words, I support Rachel's proposal and suggest we keep the bigger picture presented by Landen in mind.
