Use of semantic web development and linked data in improving e-Health care systems

Description

The Semantic Web extends the Web to make data easier interchangeable between machines and easier to use; For example, the term "Edin" in a web document can be supplemented with the information whether it is a persons, family or city name. This additional information explicates the otherwise unstructured data. The standards are for the publication and use of machine-readable data (in particular RDF). While people can infer such information from the given context (from the overall text, via the type of publication or category in the same, images, etc.) and unconsciously build such links, machines must first be taught this context; for this purpose, the contents are linked with further information. Conceptually, the Semantic Web describes a "Giant Global Graph". In this case, all things of interest are identified and provided with a unique address as nodes, which in turn are connected by edges (also each uniquely named) with each other. Individual documents on the Web then describe a series of edges, and the sum of all these edges corresponds to the global graph. Linked Open Data (LOD) refers to freely available data on the World Wide Web that are identified by the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and can be retrieved directly via HTTP and also refer to other data via URI. Ideally, data encoding and linking uses the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and standards built on it, such as the SPARQL query language and the Web Ontology Language (OWL), to allow machines to interpret their meaning correctly. Thus, the Linked Open Data is part of the Semantic Web. The interlinked data results in a worldwide network, also referred to as "Linked [Open] Data Cloud" or "Giant Global Graph". Where the focus is less on the free use of data as in free content (open data), the term linked data is common. E-Health is an emerging field in the intersection of medical informatics, public health, and business, which refers to health services and information delivered or enhanced through the Internet and related technologies.

The Semantic Web extends the Web to make data easier interchangeable between machines and easier to use; For example, the term "Edin" in a web document can be supplemented with the information whether it is a persons, family or city name.

Conceptually, the Semantic Web describes a "Giant Global Graph". In this case, all things of interest are identified and provided with a unique address as nodes, which in turn are connected by edges (also each uniquely named) with each other. Individual documents on the Web then describe a series of edges, and the sum of all these edges corresponds to the global graph.
