On the Use of an Ontology to Improve the Interoperability and Accesibility of the Electronical Health Records (EHR)

Abstract

In this paper we present a proposal to conceptualize the EHR, based on the semantic description of the information, according to the documentary structures and the clinical aspects of the EHR contents. Our aim here is to perform a formalization with a double purpose: on one hand to enable the interoperability; on the other hand, to improve the accessibility to the EHR, according to clinical or assistance contexts, provi-ding the clinical data retrieval system with flexibility and operativity. To this purpose we propose the use of an Ontology to represent this conceptualization, and include properties and relations between the components of the EHR.
