Information Systems in the context of the health domain play a critical role. The evolution of the semantic web and knowledge management technologies in the last years set a new context for the exploitation of patient-centric strategies based on well-defined semantics and knowledge. In this paper we have two critical objectives. On the one hand to exploit the state of the art on Semantic Web and Knowledge Management (KM) approaches in the context of the health domain and on the other hand to…

Service Semantics Classification: an Approach Towards Modular Service Ontology
TLDR
This paper proposes a semantics classification scheme based on service aspects that are essential for a services ecosystem and claims that this requires a modular approach in which general purpose service semantics can be further extended or specialised with domain-specific concepts.
DISMON: Using Social Web and Semantic Technologies to Monitor Diseases in Limited Environments
TLDR
DISMON Disease Monitor is presented, a system based on Semantic Technologies and Social Web SW to improve patient care for medical diagnosis in limited environments, namely, organizations to increase efficiency by means of the prevention of injuries and illnesses, resulting in a safety environment for workers.
Towards a Unifying Process Framework for Services Knowledge Management
TLDR
It is argued that a process framework approach is beneficial for service knowledge management and an abstract template and a typical service life-cycle that can be adopted to integrate heterogeneous service knowledge from diverse sources are offered.
AQUA: A Closed-Domain Question Answering System
TLDR
AQUA combines Natural Language processing, Ontologies, Logic, and Information Retrieval technologies in a uniform framework and makes intensive use of an ontology, which is used in the refinement of the initial query, the reasoning process and in the novel similarity algorithm.
Building the Foundations of an Informatics Agenda for Global Health - 2011 Workshop Report
TLDR
A workshop to examine the evidence in this domain, recognize the gaps, and document evidence-based recommendations is developed and proposed to be used as a foundation for the development of the full agenda and detailed roadmap for global health informatics activities based on further contribution from key stakeholders.
A Model Transformation Approach for Automatic Composition of COTS User Interfaces in Web-Based Information Systems
TLDR
This article is inspired on a Model-Driven Development (MDD) perspective to produce runtime automatic composition of user interfaces from model and metamodel representations of widgets-type COTS interface components architectures and model transformation.

A Context-Based Approach for Supporting Knowledge Work with Semantic Portals
TLDR
This paper presents the INWISS portal prototype that employs Semantic Web technologies for context-based integration of various information sources and applications on a semantic level and discusses extensions to this portal for the support of knowledge stances.
Archetype-Based Semantic Interoperability of Web Service Messages in the Health Care Domain
TLDR
An infrastructure enabling archetype-based semantic interoperability of Web Service messages exchanged in the health care domain is described and it is shown that the interoperable of the Web Service message instances can be achieved automatically.
Interweaving knowledge management, argumentation and decision making in a collaborative setting: the KAD ontology model
TLDR
An ontology model, namely KAD, which applies to argumentative discourses carried out in collaborative decision making settings is presented, which interweaves concepts from the Knowledge Management, Argumentation Theory, Decision Making, and Multicriteria Decision Aid disciplines.
A Survey on Ontology Creation Methodologies
TLDR
A framework for analyzing the existing methodologies that compares them to a set of general criteria is provided and a classification is obtained based upon the direction of ontology construction.
Towards the development of a novel taxonomy of knowledge management systems from a learning perspective: an integrated approach to learning and knowledge infrastructures
TLDR
An integrative framework for knowledge management support from a learning perspective is proposed, which can guide strategies of effective knowledge and learning management.
Semantic Enrichment in Ontologies for Matching
TLDR
It is proved that meta-knowledge can determine not only the scope of semantic correspondences, but also which properties are the most relevant in finding correspondence between two similar concepts.
Ontology-Based Automatic Annotation of Learning Content
TLDR
An ontology-based approach to automatic annotation of learning objects’ (LOs) content units that is tested in TANGRAM, an integrated learning environment for the domain of Intelligent Information Systems and provides a solution for automatic metadata generation for LOs components.
Approaches to Developing Semantic Web Services
TLDR
How semantic Web services extend Web services as the semantic Web improves the current Web is described, and three different conceptual approaches to deploying semantic Web Services are presented, namely, WSDL-S, OWL- S, and WSMO.
A Distributed Patient Identification Protocol Based on Control Numbers with Semantic Annotation
TLDR
A protocol is described that allows the identification of locations of patient records for a given patient and provides access to these records, if granted, under consideration of the legal and technical requirements and presents a simple Web-service-based access to clinical documents.
