Abstract

In the beta phase of the 11th revision of International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), the World Health Organization (WHO) intends to accept public input through a distributed model of authoring, in which creating textual definitions for ICD categories is a core use case. In a previous study, Wikipedia has been demonstrated as a useful source for textual definitions of diseases. The objective of the study is to develop and evaluate a semantic webbased approach for harvesting multilingual textual definitions from Wikipedia to support ICD-11 revision and its public review. In a prototype implementation, we developed a semantic web service application known as LexReview that automates the harvesting process in a dynamic way through invoking and integrating three online web services: 1) WHO ICD-11 content services; 2) NCBO BioPortal annotation services; and 3) DBpedia SPARQL endpoint query services. The Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) lexical and mapping properties are used to represent the harvested definitions. The LexReview service application could be extended to integrate the textual definitions from other resources and subsequently consumed by a review application to support ICD-11 revision.
