Abstract

The Health IT Ontology (HITO) allows systematically describing application systems and software products in health IT. Our motivation is that information management professionals have a strong need to share and compare knowledge about health IT in several situations. These situations are, among others, to describe the components of a health information system as part of its strategic or operational management, to select a new software product, to learn about available evidence regarding an application, or to hire or train health IT specialists.

Introduction back to ToC

This is a place holder text for the introduction. The introduction should briefly describe the ontology, its motivation, state of the art and goals.

Interoperability Standardc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://hitontology.eu/ontology/Interoperability

Interoperability in general is the ability of two or more components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. Standards provide a common language and a common set of expectations that enable interoperability between systems and/or devices. In order to seamlessly digest information about an individual and improve the overall coordination and delivery of healthcare, standards permit clinicians, labs, hospitals, pharmacies and patients to share data regardless of application or market supplier. Interoperability standards in the context of HITO also include interoperability frameworks such as IHE.
