Medical Terminology Systems

By Katharina Kaiser


Medical terminologies provide a powerful instrument to both abstract medical information or to enrich it in order to make it better understandable. The various application areas of terminology systems have not only led to a variety of such systems, but also to attempts developing and maintaining systems that support a multitude of application purposes. We provide an overview over commonly used terminology systems for various purposes. Furthermore, we present desirable features such systems should cover in order to satisfy today's requirements.
