One of the major themes in the Yosemite Project interoperability roadmap is to standardize the standards, using RDF as a common foundation. What does this mean, and how can it be achieved? Healthcare currently has over 100 standard vocabularies in use, and many more proprietary vocabularies. They use a wide variety of data models and data formats, and often define similar terms inconsistently. How can we now link existing standards in a common, computable way? How can we eventually converge on a consistent set of shared concepts that span healthcare’s many specialties and use cases? And how can we do this while allowing new use cases and specialties to evolve and improve efficiently? This webinar explains how we can realistically make our healthcare information standards — both de jure and de facto — work together as though they are parts of one large, consistent standard covering all of healthcare.
