Question 3d Corresponding Solutions -     (1A52)

"In the healthcare community, get HITSP members to understand the     (1A53)

difference between an ontology and a data model, that standard terminology     (1A54)

alone will not provide interoperability."     (1A55)

Question 4aGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A56)

Term: ontology     (1A57)

Gloss: (Not Answered)     (1A58)

Reference (citation/url): (Not Answered)     (1A59)

Artifact (name/version): SNOMED CT     (1A60)

- Artifact Ref. (url): (Not Answered)     (1A61)

Question 4a1 Called An Ontology - On a scale of 1 to 5, (where 1 means totally unlikely and 5 means almost always), would the above term or artifact be referred to as an "ontology" in your community?     (1A62)

[ ] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A63)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A65)

[X] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A66)

[ ] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A67)

Question 4a2 Additional Remarks -     (1A68)

"Although SNOMED CT is built using description logics, I do not consider     (1A69)

it a 'true' ontology. It has too many compound (precoordinated) concepts.     (1A70)

It does not have natural language text definitions. It is inconsistently     (1A71)

modeled. SNOMED CT is trying to be too many things to too many people/groups."     (1A72)

Question 4bGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A73)

Term: nomenclature     (1A74)

Gloss: (Not Answered)     (1A75)

Reference (citation/url): (Not Answered)     (1A76)

Question 4b1 Called An Ontology - On a scale of 1 to 5, (where 1 means totally unlikely and 5 means almost always), would the above term or artifact be referred to as an "ontology" in your community?     (1A79)

[X] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A80)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A81)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A82)

[ ] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A83)

[ ] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A84)

Question 4b2 Additional Remarks -     (1A85)

"Cited as a medical device interoperability standard (ISO/IEEE 11073),     (1A86)

the nomenclature section is touted by the developers as the key to     (1A87)

semantic interoperability. The standard has not been widely     (1A88)

implemented and is not in any format that is computable."     (1A89)

Question 4cGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A90)

[ ] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A101)

Question 4c2 Additional Remarks -     (1A102)

"Originally developed to tag CDC web pages to improve search and retrieval.     (1A103)

CDC changed web search strategies and the thesaurus is being used by some     (1A104)

in CDC to tag internal documents. The structure was changed from a MeSH     (1A105)

model to an IS-A taxonomy with the intent to grow to an ontology.     (1A106)

Funding was cut. CDC is putting efforts into building 'value sets'.     (1A107)

The thesaurus has the potential to be the glue to link the value sets     (1A108)

as well as assist with discovery and decision support - if it were funded."     (1A109)
