Nursing Outcomes Classification

"The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) is a comprehensive, standardized classification of patient/client outcomes developed to evaluate the effects of interventions provided by nurses or other health care professionals. Standardized outcomes are essential for documentation in electronic records, for use in clinical information systems, for the development of nursing knowledge and the education of professional nurses. An outcome is a measurable individual, family, or community state, behavior or perception that is measured along a continuum and is responsive to nursing interventions.

Nursing Interventions Classification

"The Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) is a comprehensive, research-based, standardized classification of interventions that nurses perform. It is useful for clinical documentation, communication of care across settings, integration of data across systems and settings, effectiveness research, productivity measurement, competency evaluation, reimbursement, and curricular design. The Classification includes the interventions that nurses do on behalf of patients, both independent and collaborative interventions, both direct and indirect care.

Vocabulario de Ciencias de la Salud para Argentina

"Basado en el vocabulario DECS desarrollado y mantenido por la Organización Panamericana de la Salud. Localización argentina realizada por el CAICYT/CONICET con apoyo de la red de bibliotecas institucionales del CONICET."

"Based on the DECS vocabulary developed and maintained by the Pan American Health Organization. Argentinean localization carried out by CAICYT / CONICET with the support of CONICET's network of institutional libraries."

Ontology for Biomedical Investigations

"The Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) project is developing an integrated ontology for the description of biological and clinical investigations. This includes a set of 'universal' terms, that are applicable across various biological and technological domains, and domain-specific terms relevant only to a given domain. This ontology will support the consistent annotation of biomedical investigations, regardless of the particular field of study.

Computer-Based Patient Record Ontology

"The (Computer-Based Patient Record) CPR ontology burrows its name from the Institute of Medicine term used to define medical records systems of the future and the important features that distinguish them for EHRs of today. In particular, it defines a set of requirements including a Record Content category, which states: Uniform core data elements, standardized coding systems and formats, a common data dictionary, and information on outcomes of care and functional status.

Genomic Clinical Decision Support Ontology

"The Genomic Clinical Decision Support (Genomic CDS) project aims to create and maintain an integrated, ontology-based knowledge base of clinically relevant pharmacogenomic information. This knowledge base is used to implement clinical decision support algorithms for improving quality of care, e.g., for providing drug dosage recommendations and comparisons of the efficacy of different treatment options."

International Classification of Primary Care

"ICPC (International Classification of Primary Care) is a clinical coding system. The first version of ICPC published in 1987 is referred to as ICPC-1. The version in the 1993 publication “The International Classification of Primary Care in the European Community: With a Multi-Language Layer” is known as ICPC-1. The second version from 1998 is referred to as ICPC-2. ICPC-2e is an electronic version from year 2000 of the revised and corrected chapters 10 and 11 of the ICPC-2 book.

Ontology for General Medical Science

"The Ontology for General Medical Science (OGMS) is an ontology of entities involved in a clinical encounter. OGMS includes very general terms that are used across medical disciplines, including: 'disease', 'disorder', 'disease course', 'diagnosis', 'patient', and 'healthcare provider'. OGMS uses the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) as an upper-level ontology. The scope of OGMS is restricted to humans, but many terms can be applied to a variety of organisms. OGMS provides a formal theory of disease that can be further elaborated by specific disease ontologies.
