Abstract

Every domain usually has its own terminology, which often differs from the ordinary understanding of concepts and terms. This chapter presents the terminology for hospital information systems and its information management, as used in this book. It is therefore essential to read this chapter carefully. All relevant concepts can also be found in the thesaurus in Appendix A.
