In this presentation, we will discuss with Claude Nanjo, a Software Architect at Cognitive Medical Systems, ways to expose clinical knowledge as OWL and RDF resources on the Web in order to promote greater convergence in the representation of health knowledge in the longer term. We will also explore how one might rally and coordinate the community to seed the Web with a core set of high-value resources and technologies that could greatly enhance health interoperability.
