The Ontology Service provides project teams and collaborations with a web-based search engine covering a range of controlled vocabularies and ontologies, enabling simple, efficient searching across all sources and terminologies, or filtering for a single ontology.
Precision Medicine Scotland also provides an API that can be used directly during extract, transform, load (ETL) workflows and application look-ups.
Many of the ontologies are updated weekly, while older versions as also supported.
The service supports cross-referencing and cross-walking, enabling users to navigate hierarchies within multiple terminologies, and cross-walk mappings between ontologies to reconcile and harmonise data from many sources, while retaining the meaning of the original mapping.
Users can build custom lists and export these as Excel spreadsheets for use with other applications.
This service is available as an extension to your existing Collaborative Workspace. Get in touch to discuss your project requirements and request a demo.
