    Abstract

    The purpose of this EU funded project is to describe a short and medium term Research and Deployment Roadmap for Semantic Interoperability in e-health. It started by defining 4 levels and 3 dimensions for Semantic Interoperability. The vision is to reconcile the needs for the direct patient care safety, biomedical and clinical research and for public health by the reuse of direct care data: from gene to individuals and populations. The methodology is presented and preliminary results and milestones for the short and the long term are set. We conclude by statements on the main characteristics and needs of the roadmap to sustain better health for individual and populations in the changing EU health care systems. © Organizing Committee of MIE 2008.
