Abstract: In this paper, the authors discuss the advantages of using formal medical ontologies to enhance health information systems. In particular, they consider the suitability of the medical ontology Snomed CT for enhancing a health information system developed in the OpenMRS framework. They propose ways in which Snomed CT can be linked to an OpenMRS application, based on their experience of extracting a module of Snomed CT for tuberculosis.
