Over deze norm
The characteristics of a terminology influence its utility and appropriateness in clinical applications. This International Standard defines universal and specialised characteristics of health terminological resources that make them fit for the purposes required of such systems. It refers only to terminological resources that are primarily designed to be used for clinical concept representation or to those parts of other terminological resources designed to be used for clinical concept representation. Categorisation of healthcare terminological systems according to the name of the system may not be helpful and has caused confusion in the past. Section 4 and 5 below supports categorisation according to the characteristics and functions of the terminological resources rather than the name. The main purpose of the entire revision work (both Part 1 and the following parts of 17117) enable users to assess whether a terminology has the characteristics or provides the functions that will support their specified requirements. The focus of this document (Part1) is to define characteristics and functions of terminological resources in healthcare that can be used to identify different types of them for categorization purpose, rather than according to the names. Requirements for, and evaluation criteria of, terminological resources in health care are described in the following parts of 17117, both of which are tightly related to the characteristics of terminological resources and functions that they can provide.
