Agenda November 3, 2014
Topic Lead
Issues of Modeling Style and Approach
  • Confirm that the service has the responsibility to format data in the preferred model as opposed to having the application deal with any valid isosemantic form of the model
  • Representation of “leaf” models as model files or as a tuple?
  • Pre versus post coordination of method, specimen, and timing in the CIMI preferred lab models?
  • What is our approach to indicating which models are the CIMI preferred models?
  • Language attribute – add it to statement and remove it from the coded_text data type in the reference model?
  • Different coded_text data type for single code versus code expressions?
Stan Huff,
Semantic and Terminology Binding Language
  • Use in CIMI Models
  • Query

Author: Thomas Beale, Stan Huff Document: PDF icon CIMI/IHTSDO DCM tooling ecosystem thoughts

These slides describe a possible semantic health modelling environment for CIMI / IHTSDO, featuring:

Next generation archetype / template tools Integrated terminology subset authoring Model management tool - CKM AML-enabled UML tooling With underlying IHTSDO terminologies, including SNOMED CT and LOINC
Author: Linda Bird Document: File CIMI Modelling Taskforce Example Instances

Clinical - Forms based - Data entry to add data instances - Support clinical verification - Both good and bad examples
Technical - Multiple formats (with a primary format?) - To support implementations - Transformable to other representations - Both good and bad examples

Author: Linda Bird Document: File CIMI Modelling Taskforce Progress Report

Modelling Taskforce was established to:

Develop CIMI's modelling methodology
Create an initial set of CIMI clinical models
Further test and develop CIMI technical models, including: - CIMI reference model - Archetype Object Model 1.5, and CIMI terminology.

Author: Rong Chen Document: File Clinical Decision Support

The common goal of improving healthcare using health IT
Clinical decision support (CDS) as a key enabler
Clinical knowledge management through the use of informatics
Scalable CDS product/services across sites/countries

Author: Rong Chen Document: PDF icon Clinical Decision Support Strategies

The common goal of improving healthcare using health IT − Patient safety, treatment efficacy and efficiency
Clinical decision support (CDS)as a key enabler − Safety net to catch error − Speed up spread of best practices & evidence-based medicine
Clinical knowledge management through the use of informatics − Computerized artefacts instead of narrative guidelines − Break the barriers of natural languages and terminologies
Scalable CDS product/services across sites/countries − Not just a black-box behind thin web services − Global library of CDS logic / apps / modules
