Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


There is an increasing demand from heterogenous organizations to collect and report healthcare quality metrics. To create an overarching model of quality that captures all stakeholders' perspectives of care and compare quality of care metrics consistently, clinical data elements should be modeled and represented unambiguously. We propose to use semantic web technologies in the domain of cancer care to build such a harmonized model and generate explicit, consistent, and comparable reports.
