Electronic Health Record and Clinical Repositories. A future based on knowledge
By Raimundo Lozano and Xavier Pastor
Abstract: Health Sciences are based upon information. Nevertheless, in the common ground clinical information is usually stored and managed by physicians with precarious tools based on a merely data registration. Ontologies, as explicit conceptualizations of a domain, are better suited for the task of representing medical knowledge and clinical data. Ontologies can be used on top of clinical systems to organize knowledge, provide decision support, and drive information retrieval.
