Abstract

Objective: To develop a representational schema for clinical data for use in exchanging data and applications, using a collaborative approach. Design: Representational models for clinical radiology were independently developed manually by several Canon Group members who had diverse application interests, using sample reports. These models were merged into one common model through an iterative process by means of workshops, meetings, and electronic mail. Results: A core merged model for radiologic findings present in a set of reports that subsumed the models that were developed independently. Conclusions: The Canon Group's modeling effort focused on a collaborative approach to developing a representational schema for clinical concepts, using chest radiography reports as the initial experiment. This effort resulted in a core model that represents a consensus. Further efforts in modeling will extend the representational coverage and will also address issues such as scalability, automation, evaluation, and support of the collaborative effort.
