Since the I_TERMINOLOGY interface is not yet defined in the openEHR Platform Model specification, we can only suggest some ideas to create test cases for the future.

Use cases to be considered:

  • return part of one terminology

    • a "part" could be a domain, a chapter, a subset, etc.

    • this includes codes, rubrics and definitions if available

  • retrieve descendants, given one terminology item

    • this applies only for hierarchical terminologies

    • a terminology item could be given by any of it's identifiers in the correspondent terminology

  • retrieve ancestors, given one terminology item

    • this applies only for hierarchical terminologies

    • a terminology item could be given by any of it's identifiers in the correspondent terminology

  • offer suggestions based on given text

    • text might be partial, complete or acronym

    • current language is needed as context

    • part of the terminology might be required to give context and constraint results

    • queried terminology is required

  • retrieve mappings of terminology items between different terminologies

    • given a terminology term, it's terminology and the target terminology, retrieve the matching terminology items from the target terminology
