Abstract

The auxological (growth) data are suitable for being processed algorithmically by specialized software. Increasing complexity of the pediatric auxology requires the development of algorithm repositories, which allow the users to select and utilize appropriate algorithms. There are many attempts to build such repositories, however their usage is limited. In order to create the modern repository of algorithms (not limited to the pediatric auxology), we have postulated the following key principles: strong philosophical background, explicit description of the semantic paradigm and its binding to the current scientific paradigm, quality management, platform independency and interoperability and trust management. Based on these principles, we have developed and validated the indicator ontology model with strong documentation quality management, implemented as web services under the open source license model. The reference implementation of the algorithm repository operates on the intranet of the Faculty hospital in Prague Motol.
