We have reviewed four FHIR ontology approaches, but now that you mention 
it, I don't think the others posted their actual ontologies, though they 
did post slides that are linked from the Work Projects section:
http://wiki.hl7.org/index.php?title=RDF_for_Semantic_Interoperability#FHIR_ontology

Tony, Claude and Eric, can you please post links to your FHIR 
ontologies?  Or if you don't have them on the web already you could 
(privately) send them to me and I'll post them on the web and then post 
a link to them.

Thanks,
David Booth
