Formal Top-Level Ontologies Applied to the Integration of Biomedical Terminologies

Submission: May 25, 2021; Published: June 16, 2021


Issues of integration, the so called lack of interoperability between clinical systems, are a world-wide challenge. While the systems have evolved in controlling technical problems, the question of semantic integration is still complex. We here present an ongoing research that demonstrate the resources and the effectiveness required to interoperate large-scale terminologies, such as SNOMED CT and ICD, within the field of obstetrics.

Keywords: Ontology; Interoperability; Data integration; Biomedical terminologies
