RE: Structured Markup for Medical WebPages

Looks very interesting Baloydi. Thanks for sharing!

It seems that has an extension for drugs as well:  ( but I'd be very amazed if there's many websites out there using it.  

Do you, or anyone else, know of websites that are annotated using such medical terms (e.g., physician, drugs, etc.)?

Kind regards,

Hello w3C Community!

There are few resources on the web about implementing structured data on medical pages. Below is a small code that can be a referenced in integrating Microdata on medical web pages.

The code below uses this Schema:

<div itemscope itemtype="">

<span itemprop="name"><strong>Dr. Baloydi N. Lloydi, MD</strong></span><br> <img itemprop="image" 
alt="Doc's Picture" />
<p itemprop="description" >Add Your Desciption Here</p>

<p>Social Media Links: <a itemprop="sameAs" href="#">G+</a>, <a itemprop="sameAs" href="#">Twitter</a> </p> <div itemprop="geo" itemscope itemtype="">
                 Longitude: <span itemprop="longitude">-97.343846</span>,
                 Longitude: <span itemprop="latitude">32.7309</span>
<p>Address: </p>
<div itemprop="address" itemscope
         <div >
                     <span itemprop="streetAddress" 
class="street-address">5588 8th Ave Ste 374</span></div>
                     <span itemprop="addressLocality" 
class="locality">Fort Worth</span>,
                     <span itemprop="addressRegion" 
                     <span itemprop="postalCode" 
<div itemprop="hospitalAffiliation" itemscope itemtype="">
<span itemprop="name">Texas Medical Center</span><br>
        <div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="">
                     <span itemprop="streetAddress" 
class="street-address">5588 8th Ave Ste 374</span>,
                     <span itemprop="addressLocality" 
class="locality">Fort Worth</span><br>
                     <span itemprop="addressRegion" 
                     <span itemprop="postalCode" 
       <div itemprop="medicalSpecialty" itemscope itemtype="">
              <div itemprop="code" itemscope itemtype="">
              Code: <span itemprop="codeValue name">Y81.0</span><br>
              <span itemprop="description">Diagnostic and monitoring
general- and plastic-surgery devices associated with adverse incidents</span><br>


This code is not perfect but I believe this can help someone struggling where to start with their integration. Your feedback is appreciated. I am reaching out to the community to help me improve this code in accordance to the W3C's standard.

Thank you and more power.
