Announcing Yosemite Project – Part 2:
TITLE: The Ideal Medium for Health Data? A Dive into Lab Tests
DATE: Friday, November 7, 2014

DESCRIPTION: In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this installment, we will hear from Conor Dowling, CTO of Caregraf about “The Ideal Medium for Health Data? A Dive into Lab Tests.”
Lab tests and results have many dimensions from substances measured to timing to the condition of a patient. This presentation will show how RDF is the best medium to fully capture this highly nuanced data.
