Abstract: Data quality issues pose immense obstacles to analysis, but even in the case of structured, semantically-clear information, inconsistency across sources of information is a barrier. By integrating terminology standards into a single model that supports custom extensions and by transforming various information models into a standards-based, normalized representation we can safely and reliably support data analysis that can be used to aggregate data created using any standard or non-standard input form or exchange mechanism.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: This presentation will introduce the need for—and highlight the benefits of—Solor and Analysis Normal Form (ANF) – open source projects sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help achieve semantic interoperability. Attendees will also understand the impact of using Solor and ANF through a LOINC Wound Care Assessment Panel example.
