Abstract

Textbooks about information management in hospitals describe the planning, monitoring and directing of a hospital’s information system. SNIK consists of the manually transformed content of three such textbooks as Linked Open Data. The data model describes information management functions, roles executing these functions and the information used or updated by these functions. We publish the result over several different interfaces that are useful for researchers, information system administrators or students, depending on their objectives and their capabilities.

Introduction back to ToC

This is a place holder text for the introduction. The introduction should briefly describe the ontology, its motivation, state of the art and goals.
