The next NCBO Webinar will be held Wednesday, April 7, at 10am PT. Please
note there will not be a VOIP option, and attendees must call into the
teleconference.

Below is information on how to join the online meeting via WebEx and
accompanying teleconference. The Webinar will be presented by Dr. Sivaram
Arabandi from Case Western Reserve University. The title of the presentation
is "Developing an Application Ontology for the Sleep Domain".

For a schedule of the 2010 presentations or for more information about the
NCBO Seminar Series, see:http://www.bioontology.org/seminar-series.


Title:
Developing an Application Ontology for the Sleep Domain

Abstract:
A number of medical ontology models provide broad coverage of clinical terms
and their relationships. In-depth coverage, however, is often not available,
limiting their use in specialized sub-domains such as Sleep Medicine.
Current ontology use is often limited to data annotation and as a source for
term lists. Applications that need additional information for terms such as
their data types, measurement units etc. need to model this information
separately.

The NCRR-funded, multi-CTSA-site PhysioMIMI project is developing a
federated data integration environment supporting collaborative clinical and
translational research in Sleep Medicine. An 'application ontology' for
sleep medicine (Sleep Domain Ontology or SDO) is being developed using upper
level and reference ontologies such as BFO, FMA, CPR and OGMS to provide a
common framework for physiological and clinical data in Sleep Medicine and
also provide adequate term definitions to guide user interfaces.
Polysomnography (PSG or sleep study) along with sleep phenotypes, diseases
and medications in the context of a clinical use case is used as an exemplar
for this project.


Speaker Bio:
Dr. Sivaram Arabandi has over 14 years of multidisciplinary clinical and
information technology experience. He trained as a General Surgeon and also
holds a Masters degree in Computer Science. Sivaram worked for over 6 years
in various fortune 500 companies in roles of Application Architect / Analyst
in the areas of Web services, Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing and
has also served on architecture review boards. Sivaram currently works as a
consultant in the area of Medical Informatics. He has worked on projects
ranging from complete implementation of clinical content development within
a structured EHR system to enterprise quality reporting frameworks. As a
clinical informatician on the SemanticDB project at the Cleveland Clinic, he
worked on the domain ontology model for Cardiothoracic Surgery, integration
of the clinical domain model into an application platform for data
acquisition as well as for outcomes reporting, inferencing and  knowledge
discovery. His current work at Case Western Reserve University involves the
development of PhysioMIMI - a platform to integrate distributed data
resources for information retrieval and analysis using semantic
technologies. In addition to managing the project, he is developing an
application ontology model for sleep medicine. His areas of special interest
are Clinical Models, Clinical Decision Support and Expert Systems.
