Estimating and Analysing Coordination in Medical Terminologies

Cornelia Hedeler, Bijan Parsia, Sebastian Brandt
2014 2014 IEEE 27th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems  
In this paper, we provide a formalization of the notion of coordination, a technique for estimating the degree of coordination in a given system, and an examination, based on our technique, of the coordination  ...  in the terminologies and so-called post-coordination where the terminology consists of a basis and a generative function from which the compound terms may be derived.  ...  Approach for estimating level of coordination in medical terminologies It is not immediate how to determine the amount of coordination in a given terminology, especially if we are aiming at the inherent  ...

2006 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
In addition, a large majority of the concepts (83%) required post-coordination, either to clarify context (e.g., time) or to better capture complex clinical concepts (e.g., disease-related findings).  ...  Estimates of coverage by various semantic characterizations were estimated.  ...  Using the sanctioned SNOMED CT terminology model (as depicted in Figure 1 ) for the post-coordination of new or complex concepts eases terminology maintenance and makes for a more efficient terminology  ...

An evaluation of the UMLS in representing corpus derived clinical concepts

Jeff Friedlin, Marc Overhage
2011 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
We performed an evaluation of the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) in representing concepts derived from medical narrative documents from three domains: chest x-ray reports, discharge summaries and  ...  Our results showed that a large portion of concepts found in clinical narrative documents are either unrepresented or poorly represented in the current version of the UMLS Metathesaurus and that post-coordination  ...  This, coupled with the fact that an estimated 50% of the total data in a patient's medical record is in the form of medical narrative physician notes 1 has increased the need for medical NLP systems that  ...

S. T. Rosenbloom, R. A. Miller, K. B. Johnson, P. L. Elkin, S. H. Brown
2006 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
To place interface terminologies in context, this article reviews historical goals and challenges of clinical terminology development in general and then focuses on the unique features of interface terminologies  ...  Necessary but not sufficient attributes for an interface terminology include adequate synonym coverage, presence of relevant assertional knowledge, and a balance between pre-and post-coordination.  ...  Balancing Pre-coordination and Post-coordination in an Interface Terminology Interface terminologies may include pre-coordinated concepts that can be further post-coordinated as necessary.  ...
