In response to Scott's request, and in an attempt to be consistent with the "Unified Ontology of Introductions to HCLSIG", I like to introduce myself.

I'm an assistant professor in Medical Informatics
My PhD research (finished 2006) was on Methods for Auditing Medical Terminological Systems
My research interest is on medical terminological systems, logic-based representation thereof, their use in clinical practice, and their quality assurance.
I have a strong interest in SNOMED CT
I'm a member of the Quality Assurance committee of the IHTSDO (International Health Terminologies Standards Development Organization), the organization that owns SNOMED CT.
I'm chair of the Implementation SIG of IHTSDO.
I'm involved in the Dutch program team that is preparing introduction of SNOMED CT in the Netherlands, organized by the Netherlands' Institute for ICT in Healthcare (Nictiz).
I'm co-chair of the Working Group on Formal (Bio)Medical knowledge Representation of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA).
I'm chair of the so-called mirror group on "Terminology and Classification" of the Dutch Norm Committee 303006 "Information provision in healthcare", and affiliate for CEN and ISO.

I would love to see semantic web techniques applied to realize semantic patient records.

Best regards,

> Teleconferencing at the W3C is based on a customized

> Calling in
> When you call in, please announce your name after the two

> phone immediately after announcing yourself. This will 
> prevent background noise from entering the shared audio for 
> the teleconference.
> Muting your phone
>   From a touch tone phone, 61# Mutes and 60# unmutes. "zakim, 
> mute <name>" also works, as well as "zakim, unmute <name>". 
> Don't forget to unmute when it's your turn to speak!
> Raising your hand to talk
>   From IRC, the command is "q+", which places your IRC name 
> on the queue.
> 41# is the touch tone equivalent. This system helps to ensure 
> that everyone gets a chance to speak. q- or 40# takes your 
> name off the queue.
