Terminological Cooperation in the Biomedical Field

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

This paper deals with collaborative terminological activities in the biomedical field. Efficient communication based on uniform language use is a prerequisite for safe and cost-efficient patient care. Terminological consistency and standardization are therefore central issues in health care with high societal relevance. The objectives of this contribution are (1) to show how different disciplines and institutions are involved in the standardization of medical terminology and (electronic) terminology systems; (2) to describe how translation-oriented terminological principles affect the translation of the Systematic Nomenclature of Medicine – Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT). The challenges of this approach will be discussed and some suggestions for its further development will be made. Keywords: clinical terminology, collaborative translation projects, conceptual analysis, concept system, ontology, ontoterminology, SNOMED CT, standardization, terminological work, theory of terminology
