Paper Abstract

The complexity of information representation in the medical domain is presented. The use of standard application oriented information architectures for multimedia medical information is discussed. An object oriented approach and the use of a document metaphor as a means of creating a framework that can accommodate this complexity is introduced. Existing standards for document descriptions are examined and their suitability as architectural foundation for such a framework is discussed. A ultrasound laboratory report is discussed in some detail as a case study for this architecture.
