Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A standardized, controlled vocabulary allows adverse drug events (ADE) information to be described in an unambiguous way in knowledge bases, which is critical for clinical decision support systems for patient medication safety. In this paper, we describe our preliminary effort on development of an ontological representation pattern for the ADE domain. We discuss clinical implications of the effort and potential challenges on its integration with existing data standards.
