Josh Mandel (second from right) spoke on a panel this week at the Semantic Technology & Business Conference, held June 2-5 in San Francisco’s Union Square. His group was there to discuss RDF as a Universal Healthcare Exchange Language, following a workshop earlier in the week that had prepared what came to be called the “Yosemite Manifesto” on the topic.
Like the other four speakers on the panel, Josh is in the business of addressing what the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology stated in its 2010 report on health IT:
The best way to manage and store data for advanced data-analytical techniques is to break data down into the smallest individual pieces that make sense to exchange or aggregate.
RDF—the Resource Description Framework—plays a key role in the SMART API. Details are provided in our developer documentation.
