Just did a white paper on it.  I don't think it's a good idea in general 
to put clinical models all in OWL or DL at all.
That part is best left to the SNOMED vocabulary part.

Here is a very recent paper on how to mix the Extensional and Intensional 
parts of the models according to how HL7 V3 does it and how Kaiser does

RE: seeks input on Study Data Exchange Standards

Great topic! I can imagine a potential white paper from this group. 

Besides technology, factors to consider might include: flexibility, 
implementation cost, return on investments, path to migration etc.

I would say Yes -- particularly since there is now an effort to represent 
some of newest HL7 standards -- FHIR resource definitions in particular -- 
using SW approaches...and the BRIDG OWL representation will almost 
certainly benefit from this effort.

Subject: FDA: seeks input on Study Data Exchange Standards

FDA seeks "input from industry, technology vendors, and other members of 
the public regarding the advantages and disadvantages of current and 
emerging open, consensus-based standards for the exchange of regulated 
study data. "

In the annoncement for a meeting 5 November FDA ask for responses, before 
5 October, on questions such as "- What are the advantages and 
disadvantages of HL7 v3 and CDISC ODM?"

And, interestingly, they also ask: "- Are there other open data exchange 
standards that should be evaluated?"

Is this an opportunity for a semantic web based proposal?

Kind Regards
