Not sure how this would works "how Wikidata's medical knowledge can be used and processed for a variety of purposes such as clinical decision support, biomedical data integration and semantic interoperability between biomedical computer systems" Doc James (talk) 22:54, 11 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Doc James: It will be difficult to explain this in a couple of lines. But, I will try to do that. As you already know, Wikidata entities are linked to corresponding ones in other biomedical ontologies using properties like MeSH ID. Consequently, two computer programs using distinct ontologies can interact together using Wikidata as a pivot ontology. Concerning biomedical data integration, it can be done using tools such as QuickStatements, Mix'n'match and Pywikibot. As for clinical decision support, you can refer to (Josefiok et al., 2015) and Diefenbach et al., 2017). If you like to have further details about this, please send me an email and I will answer it. --Csisc (talk) 15:24, 21 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
