Health Informatics — Categorial structures for the representation of the decocting process in traditional Chinese medicine

This document aims to specify categorial structures in the field of decoction. This document describes a concept system detailing domain constraints of sanctioned characteristics, each composed of a semantic link and applicable characterizing categories. The following topics are out of scope of this document: — models of decoction pieces; — the specification of categorial structures for the representation of post or manufacturing processes of decoction such as packaging; — individual pharmaceutical, medicinal products or herbal substances. This document is applicable to terminological systems/resources.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Introduction

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is widely used as a part of complementary and alternative medicine

treatments worldwide. Decoction is the most common method for taking TCM medication. It is also the

most common extraction method used to manufacture various dosage forms of TCM medication, such

as granules or liquids. It is also necessary to represent the categorial structure describing the decocting

process involved in the determination of therapeutic equivalence.

Guidelines prescribing decoction in clinical trials and in research are already available. A large number

of clinical trials have been conducted to determine the efficacy and efficiency of decoction. However,

the heterogeneity of descriptions among trials often causes difficulties in synthesizing the data found

in meta-analyses. This is a result of the following three reasons: firstly, an appropriate information

structure of decocting process has not yet been formulated; secondly, the peculiar concepts within

traditional medicine in the western pacific-rim region that originated in China are not considered

sufficient; thirdly, semantic associations between concepts of decoction need to be explicit.

This document defines the minimal categorial structures used by terminological systems in the field of

decoction in order to address the aforementioned issues.
The potential benefits of this document include

— supporting developers to provide new terminological systems concerning the decocting process,

— supporting developers to provide new detailed content areas for existing terminological systems on

the decocting process,

— facilitating the representation of the decocting process using a standardized core model in a manner

suitable for computer processing,

— providing a conceptual framework for the generation of a compositional concept representation of

the decocting process,

— facilitating the mapping and improved semantic correspondence between different terminologies

by proposing a core specification for the decocting process,

— providing a core model to describe the structure of the decocting process and to facilitate improved

semantic correspondence with information models,

— providing a tool for text mining on the decocting process, for database construction and for ancient

document processing over a wide area of TCM information collection and processing, and

— providing a new method for researchers to conduct relevant research and implement relevant ideas

for the development of TCM disciplines.
