Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES:

Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) is implementing a new laboratory management system (LMS) common to the 12 hospital groups. First step to this process was to acquire a biological analysis dictionary. This dictionary is interfaced with the international nomenclature LOINC, and has been developed in collaboration with experts from all biological disciplines. In this paper we describe in three steps (modeling, data migration and integration/verification) the implementation of a platform for publishing and maintaining the AP-HP laboratory data dictionary (AnaBio).

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

Due to data complexity and volume, setting up a platform dedicated to the terminology management was a key requirement. This is an enhancement tackling identified weaknesses of previous spreadsheet tool. Our core model allows interoperability regarding data exchange standards and dictionary evolution.

RESULTS:

We completed our goals within one year. In addition, structuring data representation has lead to a significant data quality improvement (impacting more than 10% of data). The platform is active in the 21 hospitals of the institution spread into 165 laboratories.

KEYWORDS:

Authoring framework; Biological analysis; Controlled vocabulary; LOINC; Nomenclature; Standardization
