  • Summary: In a global communication system, many data bases and data sources all have their proper data structure and representation. This pluriformity of data sources puts on obstacle to the integratability of their information as well as to a uniform rendering of it. As a result, propagating medical information in the system becomes really difficult. A really fundamental solution can be found in the semantic coupling (on the meaning level) of the data bases to an ontology or formal conceptualisation of a domain, c.q. the medical domain in a hospital.
