The next NCBO Webinar will be presented TOMORROW by Rob Wynden from UCSF on
"Health Ontology Mapper(HOM) and extending the reach of BioPortal" at
10:00am Pacific Time, Wednesday, March 7.  Below is information on how to
join the online meeting via WebEx and accompanying teleconference. For the
full schedule of the NCBO Webinar presentations see:

Biomedical ontologies are not as "pure" as their biological counterparts
and new services for the NCBO BioPortal are needed to address those
requirements.  We need better methods of describing clinical instance data,
far more robust support for value sets, more seamless methods for
inheriting medical terms into site specific implementations, and we need
cleaner versioning of medical terminologies.  The IHPS Lab and the HOM
project continue to work on these issues to make computation on clinical
instance data across institutions a reality.

Rob Wynden is the lead scientist at the IHPS informatics Lab where he
leads a dedicated team of informatics researchers working on issues in
population statistics when working with clinical data.  Rob has also lead
the HOM (Health Ontology Mapper) project for the CTSA for the last 4 years
and the IHPS Lab is an active user of the NCBO BioPortal and NCBO Annotator
Ketty Mobed, PhD is the clinical ontologist and staff researcher at the
IHPS Informatics Lab. To date she has created and compiled several dozen
working ontologies, that when used in conjunction with HOM will let the
enduser access and search the underlying source data.
