Abstract

Clinical terminology servers are distinguished from more broadly based terminology servers intended for nomenclature development or mediation across classifications. Focusing upon the consistent and comparable entry of clinical observations, findings, and events, key desiderata are enumerated and expanded. These include 1) word normalization, 2) word completion, 3) target terminology specification, 4) spelling correction, 5) lexical matching, 6) term completion, 7) semantic locality, 8) term composition and 9) decomposition. Comparisons of this functionality to previously published models and specifications are made. Experience with a clinical terminology server, Metaphrase, is described.
