Swiss health metadata repository : implementation recommendations - requirements, recommended architecture and prototype implementation
Abstract In the context of a decentralized approach for health data resources, a central metadata repository becomes essential for the identification/description of the necessary resources. A Swiss Health Metadata Repository is expected to enable multiple advantages, namely: to provide a single entry point for searching/retrieving health-related resources; to help identify possible semantic linking between data sources; to provide a consistent data catalog ensured by the use of standardized vocabularies/ontologies; to enable potential exchange of experience and know-how between health data-related projects in Switzerland; and to increase the capacity of research groups to share/access/analyse health related data.
This policy brief focuses on the implementation aspects of a proof-of-concept proto-type for Swiss Health Metadata Repository.
