Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)

Summary

The processing of medical freetext, the structured storage of its meaning for later retrieval purposes and the instant generation of uniform internationally accepted codes as ICD, ICPM will be discussed. Xmed-DD is a new approach to this problem using the translation system TRANSOFT, a frame- and knowledge-based architecture for information processing and the document description language SGML for definition of structure and contents of text. The entire process is supported by lexicon-entries stored in a medical thesaurus.
