Animal Health Surveillance Ontological Framework (AHSO)

Animal health data are collected for different primary purposes by different institutions, e.g. clinical data are stored by veterinarians to have history on their patients; laboratory data are recorded mainly to allow proper billing. These data are then used for surveillance secondarily - we build automated systems that try to make sense of these data to detect patterns of diseases in real-time.

Project Goal: To develop a framework of interconnected ontological modules which can promote the secondary use of animal health data for surveillance (data-driven surveillance, or syndromic surveillance).

Background information and resources about ontologies

Visit the AHSO open book. This is an open-book initiative, and everyone is welcome to add discussions or suggest materials that can enrich the repository for those of us trying to understand what ontologies are all about and how they can contribute to animal health surveillance.
