Investigating the lexico-syntactic properties of phenotype terms – Application to interoperability between HPO and SNOMED CT.
Objective: To investigate the lexico-syntactic properties of clinical phenotype terms in order to identify partial lexical mappings between HPO and SNOMED CT. Methods: We identify modifiers HPO terms and attempt to map demodified terms to SNOMED CT through UMLS. Results: We identified partial mappings to SNOMED CT for 20% of HPO concepts with no complete mapping to SNOMED CT. Conclusions: Through complete and partial mappings, 50% of the HPO concepts can be mapped to SNOMED CT.
