The Schema.org  - Health & Medical enhancement Community Group has been proposed:


The focus is on improving the quality and nuance of the terms in
Schema.org to maximize linkability, and to keep it as small,  simple,
and straightforward for the widest audience possible.

(1) For implementers: to maximize ease of linkage to existing, external,
authoritative terminologies, ontologies,etc. 
(2) For providers: improve linkability with external sources of
authoritative health information sources (NIH, PubMed, MeSH, etc.)
(3) For patients: improve linkability and enrichment of digital  content
provided to patients from their healthcare providers (such as discharge
summaries, lab results, etc.)
(4) For researchers: Enhanced alignment with authoritative, scientific
health data publishers.
