Two DL-based methods for auditing medical terminological systems

Ronald Cornet, Ameen Abu-Hanna
2005 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
In this paper we describe two methods based on description logics (DLs) for the audit of TSs. One method uses non-primitive definitions to detect concepts with equivalent definitions.  ...  Medical terminological systems (TSs) play an increasingly important role in health care by supporting recording, retrieval and analysis of patient information.  ...  (ICZ) for the project entitled "Terminology and Semantics: Making semantics explicit", number 014-18-014.  ...

Dissimilarities in the Logical Modeling of Apparently Similar Concepts in SNOMED CT

Ankur Agrawal, Gai Elhanan, Michael Halper
2010 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
Due to this, external auditing should be encouraged to identify such issues and complement IHTSDO's efforts.  ...  Their presence may interfere with the performance of terminology-driven applications. With the use of SNOMED expanding, such inconsistencies may eventually affect clinical care.  ...  The most commonly perceived use of terminologies such as SCT is the encoding of clinical data within electronic medical systems including Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Clinical Information Systems  ...

Validating the semantics of a medical iconic language using ontological reasoning

Jean-Baptiste Lamy, Lina F. Soualmia, Gaëtan Kerdelhué, Alain Venot, Catherine Duclos
2013 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
The ontology may also be useful for the design of mapping between VCM and other medical terminologies, for generating textual labels for icons, and for developing user interfaces for creating VCM icons  ...  This work aims to represent the VCM language using DLs and OWL for evaluating its semantics by reasoners, and in particular for determining inconsistent icons.  ...  We thank Rosy Tsopra (MD) and Antonio Teixeira (MD) for their participation in the evaluation of the icons' consistency.  ...
