Abstract [en]

Lack of an agreed infrastructure for terminology is identified as one of the major barriers to interchange of knowledge modules and integration of knowledge bases with other clinical information systems. The goal of the GALEN project is to bridge this gap between different terminology systems through the construction of a terminology server, which is based on a rich conceptual model with mapping facilities to natural language expressions and coding schemas. The long term goal is to support communication between medical information systems. Arden Syntax is a standard format for the creation of knowledge modules, with sharability as one of the main objectives. Since Arden Syntax is based on a data-driven approach, the data items used need to be adapted to locally available terminology. The GALEN approach appears to be complementary to Arden Syntax and to the development of sharable knowledge modules. The major theme of this paper is utilization of the GALEN terminology server for knowledge module authoring. Two systems are presented, a knowledge base manager and a client to the terminology server, allowing the user to navigate in the semantic network and to import concept definitions and terms into the knowledge modules. The benefit of the terminology services is discussed.

Abstract [en]

Classifications, terminology and terminology services are important in the field of medical informatics. They are needed when building applications such as Computer based Patient Record systems (CPRs). Even though many classifications, nomenclatures and terminology systems have been constructed to this end, e .g. ICD, MeSH and SNOMED, no single system has, so far, covered medicine in its entirety. Several of the aforementioned constructs have grown to the extent that manual maintenance can no longer cope, thus computer based tools are needed for this task.

The main objective of this thesis is to present some computer based terminology tools that have been constructed to facilitate part of the work of building sound terminologies and application systems. The usefulness of such terminologies, terminology tools as well as the importance of being able to integrate the terminology have been reviewed and are discussed. Moreover tools (from GALEN) for maintenance and developme nt of classilications are evaluated.

Two terminology tools are presented that aim to facilitate the access to and the use of terminology and terminology services. One tool is built on a proposal for a concept oriented Swedish national terminology data base model (Spriterm). The other tool is a dedicated client (KOMANTIS) to the GALEN terminology server (TeS) developed as a deliverable within the European GALEN project. It will facilitate the integration of terminologies between the information system and the knowledge base when building Decision Support Systems (DSS).
