Subject: Re: [regrep] [Deadline Tomorrow] Re: [regrep] XML2004 abstractdeadline: May 7

Here is the abstract I submitted this morning 
before the WSRP telecon and my meetings between 
then and now. I post it here in reply to this 
thread because it includes ebXML registry spec as 
part of the whole, as well as UDDI, but the point 
of "Connecting the Dots..." ties into this effort 
as well since the follow on to the CAP alerts 
using WSRP will include both GIS and Medical 
portlets. The medical portlets might well be 
discovered by using the semantic processes layed 
out in this abstract as e-health knowledge 
embedded in the Ontologies referred to, but I 
somehow doubt an acceptable definition of an 
Upper Ontology is likely to emerge before 
November, let alone be in place for actual use, 
so if you are going to use ARTEMIS could you send 
a url? Google finds a DNA Sequence Viewer, a 
pharmaceuticals firm, a breast cancer newsletter 
and a UK medical jobs site  but that is about as 
close I got before I gave up...

Since I have actually done a study of the 
healthcare standards and information/knowledge 
base fields from HL7 to HIPAA to the Public 
Health Data Standards Consortium and it is not a 
wonderfully well organized picture so finding a 
coherent use of the ISO/TS 15000 standard by the 
Mayo clinic would be especially appreciated.

Note the specific use I plan to make of 
ebXML/UDDI registries is to reference specific 
treatments for specific types of emergencies, 
such as fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, 
hazmat, biological agents such as small pox, 
chemical agents such as chlorine gas, explosions, 
gunshots, chain reaction automobile accidents, 
airliner crashes, etc.
