Abstract

To address current key problems of medical documentation: lack of transparency, overwhelming amount of medical contents to be documented and missing interoperability, the Portal of Medical Data Models (http://medical-data-models.org/) was established in 2012. Constantly evolving, four years later, the portal displays more than 8900 medical data models with more than 250000 items, of which 84 % have been semantically annotated with UMLS codes to support interoperability. Giving an update on new functions and contents of the portal, two additional export formats have been implemented, allowing the reuse of forms such as HL7's framework Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) Questionnaires, as well as the OpenDataKit format. Future projects include the implementation of an ODMtoOpenClinica converter, as well as supporting the reuse of forms with Apple's ResearchKit and Android's ResearchStack.
