Abstract

Due to fundamental differences in design and editorial policies, semantic interoperability between two de facto standard terminologies in the healthcare domain-the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and SNOMED CT (SCT), requires combining two different approaches: (i) axiom-based, which states logically what is universally true, using an ontology language such as OWL; (ii) rule-based, expressed as queries on the axiom-based knowledge. We present the ICD-SCT harmonization process including: a) a new architecture for ICD-11, b) a protocol for the semantic alignment of ICD and SCT, and c) preliminary results of the alignment applied to more than half the domain currently covered by the draft ICD-11.
