Glossary - incomplete

Definition and Purpose

Is a collection of defined terms used in the specifications created for a particular domain or project. It collects defined terms from a variety of sources and makes them and their definitions available for "re-use" in other standards and publications. PRELIMINARY NOTES: MIF - (bold is element)

  • glossary
    • title (0..1)
    • secondaryId (0..1)
    • packageLocation (0..1)
      • all standard elements
    • replaces (0..*) (glossary by ref)
    • replacedBy (0..*) (glossary by ref)
    • importedGlossary (0..*) (glossary by ref) "base glossary" whose terms will be overridden if defined in current glossary
    • termDefinition (1..*)
      • term (1..1) note that this is the sole identifier at this level
      • definition (0..*) - despite being infinitely infinite, there is NO further identification except the "lang" in the text element
        • 'text (1..*) (with language)
      • termTranslation (0..*)
        • name (1..1) - translated term
        • lang (0..1)
        • realmNamespace (0..*) in which used or managed
          • value (1..1)
      • seeAlso (0..*) type is a string holding a term to reference

identifier elements (min) reqd choices for publishing include : artifact realm domain name

gl identified by:

should be artifact (not defined in a domain like the RIM, DAM, DT, VO, DC , but these are NOT presently allowed a GL)

domain-realm artifact-domain-realm

name-realm (Like core principles)

SAIF Matrix Location

This artifact is "Level-independent" because it is may be required at any level at which other artifacts or specifications are being defined. Glossaries are managed to serve all levels. Row(s)

  • Conceptual (CIM)
  • Logical (PIM)
  • Implementable (PSM)

Column(s)

  • Enterprise/Business
  • Information

Audience

The audience is all audiences because the definitional clarity provided by a glossary is intended to inform any audience.

Health Care Community Audiences:

  • General public
  • Health care practitioners
  • Health system administrators
  • Health care policy makers

Health Care Information Technology (IT) Audiences:

  • System designers and architects
  • System purchasers
  • Programmers/implementers
  • System vendor management

Applicability

This artifact should be created wherever new terminology is being introduced for use in HL7 specifications. Because of the management requirements of glossaries, they should be defined, in general, at the domain level rather than as part of artifacts of a lower scope.

Rationale:Glossary term definitions need to be overseen by the Work Groups that create them and must be managed, overall, for publishing in HL7. Thus the glossary content should be aggregated, to the degree possible, within Work Groups and domains.

Requirements, Relationships and Content

  1. Each glossary term must have a unique name within the context in which it is defined.
