From clinical records to regulatory reporting: formal terminologies as foundation.

Harris MR, Ruggieri AP, Chute CG - Health Care Financ Rev (2003)

Bottom Line: Terminological data related to functioning and disability presents unique challenges because of the conceptual ambiguity within the field.The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) provides a clarifying conceptual foundation for functioning and disability data, but is not structured as a formal terminology.The need for a concerted and coordinated effort is emphasized.

ABSTRACT
Achieving goals of healthy people and populations is dependent on available and relevant data for health care decisions. New technologies enable reuse of data for decisions, however it is clear that uniform data standards and in particular standards around terminological data will be required to achieve reuse. Terminological data related to functioning and disability presents unique challenges because of the conceptual ambiguity within the field. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) provides a clarifying conceptual foundation for functioning and disability data, but is not structured as a formal terminology. The need for a concerted and coordinated effort is emphasized.

f1-hcfr-24-3-103: ICF Ontology, Derived from Coneptual Decomposition of the ICF Introduction, Expressed in Unified Modeling Language

Mentions: As a first step in this development, members of our group have been working to make explicit the semantic classes and relationships within the ICF (Ruggieri et al., 2001). Figure 1 illustrates initial work to explicate the ICF ontology, with the hope of formalizing the conceptual underpinnings of ICF. The figure was constructed using a Unified Modeling Language visual modeling application that imposes syntactic rules for the purpose of enforcing logical consistency in the modeling effort (Jacobson, Booch, and Rumbaugh, 1999).
