Terminology servers provide access to various biomedical terminologies for authoring and maintenance, in addition to automated use by various clinical and administrative applications and interface engines. HL7 Common Terminology Services (CTS) intends to provide standard interfaces for accessing terminology services within and across organizations. However, variations in designs of different terminologies make this hard to achieve. We describe a novel solution to this issue, and hope to integrate this into the HL7 CTS2 standard.
