The number of existing medical terminologies, ontologies and classifications of diseases and concepts set burdens towards the interoperability between different health systems. The focus of this STSM will be the study of semantic web techniques that facilitate the interoperability of health care systems. The main approach to study will be the use of ontologies to represent and reason with medical information, as well as the use of ontology bridges to map information among different formats. The discovery and use of health services and resources will be considered as well.
