Selective retrieval of pre- and post-coordinated SNOMED concepts. (1/155)

In general, it is very straightforward to store concept identifiers in electronic medical records and represent them in messages. Information models typically specify the fields that can contain coded entries. For each of these fields there may be additional constraints governing exactly which concept identifiers are applicable. However, because modern terminologies such as SNOMED CT are compositional, allowing concept expressions to be pre-coordinated within the terminology or post-coordinated within the medical record, there remains the potential to express a concept in more than one way. Often times, the various representations are similar, but not equivalent. This paper describes an approach for retrieving these pre- and post-coordinated concept expressions: (1) Create concept expressions using a logically-well-structured terminology (e.g., SNOMED CT) according to the rules of a well-specified information model (in this paper we use the HL7 RIM); (2) Transform pre- and post-coordinated concept expressions into a normalized form; (3) Transform queries into the same normalized form. The normalized instances can then be directly compared to the query. Several implementation considerations have been identified. Transformations into a normal form and execution of queries that require traversal of hierarchies need to be optimized. A detailed understanding of the information model and the terminology model are prerequisites. Queries based on the semantic properties of concepts are only as complete as the semantic information contained in the terminology model. Despite these considerations, the approach appears powerful and will continue to be refined.  (+info)

An integrative model for in-silico clinical-genomics discovery science. (2/155)

Human Genome discovery research has set the pace for Post-Genomic Discovery Research. While post-genomic fields focused at the molecular level are intensively pursued, little effort is being deployed in the later stages of molecular medicine discovery research, such as clinical-genomics. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the relevance and significance of integrating mainstream clinical informatics decision support systems to current bioinformatics genomic discovery science. This paper is a feasibility study of an original model enabling novel "in-silico" clinical-genomic discovery science and that demonstrates its feasibility. This model is designed to mediate queries among clinical and genomic knowledge bases with relevant bioinformatic analytic tools (e.g. gene clustering). Briefly, trait-disease-gene relationships were successfully illustrated using QMR, OMIM, SNOMED-RT, GeneCluster and TreeView. The analyses were visualized as two-dimensional dendrograms of clinical observations clustered around genes. To our knowledge, this is the first study using knowledge bases of clinical decision support systems for genomic discovery. Although this study is a proof of principle, it provides a framework for the development of clinical decision-support-system driven, high-throughput clinical-genomic technologies which could potentially unveil significant high-level functions of genes.  (+info)

Improved coding of the primary reason for visit to the emergency department using SNOMED. (3/155)

There are over 100 million visits to emergency departments in the United States annually that could be a source of data for multiple uses including disease surveillance, health services research, quality assurance activates, and research. The patients' motivations for seeking care or the reason for visit (RFV) are recorded in every case. Efforts to utilize this rich source of data are hampered by inconsistent data entry and coding. This study analyzes ICD-9-CM, SNOMED-RT, and SNOMED-CT encoding of the RFV for accuracy. Each encoded reason for visit was compared to the text entry recorded at the time of visit to determine the closeness of fit. Each coded entry was judged to be an exact lexical match, a synonym, a broader or narrower concept or no match. SNOMED-CT was a lexical match or synonym for 93% of the text entries, while SNOMED-RT matched 87%, and ICD-9-CM matched 40%. We demonstrate that SNOMED coding of the RFV is more accurate than ICD-9-CM coding.  (+info)

The lexical properties of the gene ontology. (4/155)

The Gene Ontology (GO) is a construct developed for the purpose of annotating molecular information about genes and their products. The ontology is a shared resource developed by the GO Consortium, a group of scientists who work on a variety of model organisms. In this paper we investigate the nature of the strings found in the Gene Ontology and evaluate them for their usefulness in natural language processing (NLP). We extend previous work that identified a set of properties that reliably identifies natural language phrases in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS). The results indicate that a large percentage (79%) of GO terms are potentially useful for NLP applications. Some 35% of the GO terms were found in a corpus derived from the MEDLINE bibliographic database, and 27% of the terms were found in the current edition of the UMLS.  (+info)

Role grouping as an extension to the description logic of Ontylog, motivated by concept modeling in SNOMED. (5/155)

Several clinical terminologies now utilize description logic to model the logical definitions of concepts. Recent editions of the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED) have been developed using the description logic Ontylog. A significant design criterion for SNOMED is to keep concept expressions simple enough to be broadly usable by clinicians, while maintaining faithful representation of concept meaning. Motivated by this criterion, "role grouping" has been developed as an extension to the description logic Ontylog. This paper describes the problems that motivated the creation of role grouping, outlines the semantics of role grouping, illustrates the benefits of this construct with examples from SNOMED Clinical Terms, and provides an algorithm for determining normal forms for expressions involving role groups.  (+info)

The SNOMED clinical terms development process: refinement and analysis of content. (6/155)

SNOMED Clinical Terms is a comprehensive concept-based health care terminology that was created by merging SNOMED RT and Clinical Terms Version 3. Following the mapping of concepts and descriptions into a merged database, the terminology was further refined by adding new content, modeling the relationships of individual concepts, and reviewing the hierarchical structure. A quality control process was performed to ensure integrity of the data. Additional features such as subsets, qualifiers, and mappings to other coding systems were added or updated to facilitate usability. We then analyzed the content of the completed work. This paper describes the refinement processes and compares the actual content of SNOMED CT with the early data obtained from analysis of the description mapping process. As predicted, the majority of concepts in SNOMED CT originated from SNOMED RT or CTV3, but not both.  (+info)

Coverage of oncology drug indication concepts and compositional semantics by SNOMED-CT. (7/155)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate SNOMED-CT 's ability to represent simple and compositional concepts in FDA approved oncology drug indications. METHODS: Oncology drug indications were decomposed into single and compositional concepts. SNOMED-CT's coverage of single concepts and the semantics needed to create compositional concepts were evaluated using automated and manual techniques. RESULTS: SNOMED-CT covered 86.3% of single concepts present in oncology drug indications; 11.3% of indications were covered completely. Coverage was best for concepts describing diseases, anatomy, and patient characteristics. Medications accounted for 50.5% of missing concepts. Excluding drug names, 45.2% of indications were completely represented. SNOMED-CT's semantics completely represented 60.1% of compositional expressions. CONCLUSIONS: SNOMED-CT's overall coverage of the concepts in oncology drug indications was good. Improvements or alternatives are needed for medications and semantics.  (+info)

Putting data integration into practice: using biomedical terminologies to add structure to existing data sources. (8/155)

A major purpose of biomedical terminologies is to provide uniform concept representation, allowing for improved methods of analysis of biomedical information. While this goal is being realized in bioinformatics, with the emergence of the Gene Ontology as a standard, there is still no real standard for the representation of clinical concepts. As discoveries in biology and clinical medicine move from parallel to intersecting paths, standardized representation will become more important. A large portion of significant data, however, is mainly represented as free text, upon which conducting computer-based inferencing is nearly impossible. In order to test our hypothesis that existing biomedical terminologies, specifically the UMLS Metathesaurus and SNOMED CT, could be used as templates to implement semantic and logical relationships over free text data that is important both clinically and biologically, we chose to analyze OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man). After finding OMIM entries' conceptual equivalents in each respective terminology, we extracted the semantic relationships that were present and evaluated a subset of them for semantic, logical, and biological legitimacy. Our study reveals the possibility of putting the knowledge present in biomedical terminologies to its intended use, with potentially clinically significant consequences.  (+info)

SNOMED CT is a clinical terminology with global scope covering a wide range of clinical specialties, disciplines and requirements. As a result of its broad scope, one of the benefits of SNOMED CT is a reduction of specialty boundary effects that arise from use of different terminologies or coding systems by different clinicians or departments. This allows wider sharing and reuse of structured clinical information. Another benefit of SNOMED CT is that the same data can be processed and presented in ways that serve different purposes. For example, clinical records represented using SNOMED CT can be processed and presented in different ways to support direct patient care, clinical audit, research, epidemiology, management and service planning. Additionally, the global scope of SNOMED CT reduces geographical boundary effects arising from the use of different terminologies or coding systems in different organizations and countries.. With SNOMED CT, clinical information is recorded using identifiers ...

Earlier SNOMED versions had faceted structure ordered by semantic axes, requiring that more complex situations required to be coded by a coordination of different codes. This had two major shortcomings. On the one hand, the necessity of post-coordination was perceived as a user-unfriendly obstacle, which has certainly contributed to the rather low adoption of early SNOMED versions. On the other hand, uniform coding was difficult to obtain. E.g.,Acute appendicitis could be post-coordinated in three different ways[20] with no means to compute semantic equivalences. SNOMED RT had addressed this problem by introducing description logic formula. With the addition of CTV3 a large number of concepts were redefined using formal expressions. However, the fusion with CTV3, as a historically grown terminology with many close-to user descriptions, introduced some problems which still affect SNOMED CT. In addition to a confusing taxonomic web of many hierarchical levels with massive multiple inheritance ...
A set of textual descriptions are assigned to every concept. These provide the human readable form of a concept. Two types of description are used to represent every concept - Fully Specified Name (FSN) and Synonym.. The FSN represents a unique, unambiguous description of a concepts meaning. The FSN is not intended to be displayed in clinical records, but is instead used to disambiguate the distinct meaning of each different concept. This is particularly useful when different concepts are referred to by the same commonly used word or phrase. Each concept can have only one FSN in each language or dialect.. A synonym represents a term that can be used to display or select a concept. A concept may have several synonyms. This allows users of SNOMED CT to use the terms they prefer to refer to a specific clinical meaning. Concepts can have multiple synonyms, and the associated terms are not necessarily unique - thus two concepts can have the same synonym term. Interpretation of a synonymous term ...
The purpose of the SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CM map is to support semi-automated generation of ICD-10-CM codes from clinical data encoded in SNOMED CT for reimbursement and statistical purposes.
In some cases it can be even more interesting:. 404.00 - Hypertensive heart and chronic kidney disease, malignant, without mention of heart failure and with chronic kidney disease stage I through stage IV, or unspecified. When I saw this in the ICD9CM, I assumed it was a legacy issue and existed because ICD9CM has been around for awhile. So I looked in ICD10-CM…. I132 - Hypertensive heart and chronic kidney disease with heart failure and with stage V chronic kidney disease, or end stage renal disease. And then I looked at SNOMED-CT…. 194779001 - Hypertensive heart and renal disease with (congestive) heart failure. So, as it turns out, it is still an ongoing practice to create concatenated terms. This is not a legacy thing, or it is a legacy thing that has found its way into the terminologies we are supposed to use as we move forward.. I want to stop at this point and remind the reader that I am not a clinical person. I am a simple country programmer and guerilla informaticist. So there might ...

One caveat: mono tests have a high rate of false positives. Another caveat: mono tests have a high rate of false negatives.

Or not work. And one more thing: the latency period might be eight weeks. The jurys out.. You probably have mono. Ninety-five percent of the population has mono. Or has had mono?

formally a subsumption hierarchy, extends ordered intensional complexity. Salthe writes: Hierarchy Theory encompasses both the scalar hierarchy with nested extensions (represented as scalar levels as in [ecosystem [population [organism ]]] and also the specification hierarchy of ordered intensional complexity, modeled as integrative levels, therwise ontological levels of reality, as in the following example: {physical world {chemical world {biological world {social world {mental world }}}}} The notation involved {} and [] reflects the different kinds of levels. Salthe explains: In the scalar system, [ ] is a selector such lower level dynamics pass are organized by a higher level so as to create the forms and processes of an intermediate level. The system is basically three leveled. In the specification hierarchy { } is a selectively transparent one-way filter. For example, at the level where social dynamics are taking place selected chemical dynamics are also visible, in their effects ...
Text Organization Effects Text organization refers to the effects that the degree and type of organization built into a passage have on the degree and type of information that learners encode and remember. Structural elements such as advanced organizers, previews, logical sequencing, outline formats, higlighting of main ideas and summaries assist learning in retaining information. These organization effects facilitate chunking, subsumption of material into schemas and related processes that enable encoding as an organized body of meaningful knowledge. In addition, text organization elements cue learners to which aspects of the material are most important ...
The Behavior Language is a rule-based real-time parallel robot programming language originally based on ideas from [Brooks 86], [Connell 89], and [Maes 89]. It compiles into a modified and extended version of the subsumption architecture [Brooks 86] and thus has backends for a number of processors including the Motorola 68000 and 68HCll, the Hitachi 6301, and Common Lisp. Behaviors are groups of rules which are activatable by a number of different schemes. There are no shared data structures across behaviors, but instead all communication is by explicit message passing. All rules are assumed to run in parallel and asynchronously. It includes the earlier notions of inhibition and suppression, along with a number of mechanisms for spreading of activation ...
Recently the medical literature has documented the growing use of CT scans. It is certainly no secret that, when circumstances warrant, SonoSite advocates for the consideration of ultrasound first over other imaging modalities. A CT scan is a powerful and valuable test when used appropriately and-as with all medical procedures-when its therapeutic value is carefully weighed against its potential harm. Yet, while acknowledging CTs value, I cant ignore mounting evidence indicating CT scans are being ordered more often than are necessary or safe.

Description Logic is a formalism that is widely used in the framework of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning in Artificial Intelligence. It is based on Classical Logic in order to guarantee the correctness of the inferences on the required reasoning tasks. It is indeed a fragment of First Order Predicate Logic whose language is strictly related to the one of Modal Logic. Fuzzy Description Logic is the generalization of the classical Description Logic framework thought for reasoning with vague concepts that often arise in practical applications. Fuzzy Description Logic has been investigated since the last decade of the 20th century. During the first fifteen years of investigation its semantics has been based on Fuzzy Set Theory. A semantics based on Fuzzy Set Theory, however, has been shown to have some counter-intuitive behavior, due to the fact that the truth function for the implication used is not the residuum of the truth function for the conjunction. In the meanwhile, Fuzzy Logic has ...
Using a standardized set of medical terminologies can help organize EMR content and facilitate patient care, follow-up and documentation in countries with many official languages. A controlled medical vocabulary of clinical terms from patient-provider encounters was developed from submissions of members of the medical community in the Philippines.

In this paper, we study the problem of exchanging knowledge between a source and a target knowledge base (KB), connected through mappings. Differently from the traditional database exchange setting, which considers only the exchange of data, we are interested in exchanging implicit knowledge. As representation formalism we use Description Logics (DLs), thus assuming that the source and target KBs are given as a DL TBox+ABox, while the mappings have the form of DL TBox assertions. We study the problem of translating the knowledge in the source KB according to these mappings. We define a general framework of KB exchange, and address the problems of representing implicit source information in the target, and of computing different kinds of solutions, i.e., target KBs with specified properties, given a source KB and a mapping. We develop first results and study the complexity of KB exchange for DL-Lite_RDFS, a DL corresponding to the FOL fragment of RDFS, and for DL-Lite_R ...
