One goal of the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) is to provide an infrastructure for FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) health-related data for research purposes. Semantic web technology and biomedical terminologies are key to achieving semantic interoperability. To enable the integrative use of different terminologies, a terminology service is a important component of the SPHN Infrastructure for FAIR data. It provides both the current and historical versions of the terminologies in an SPHN-compliant graph format. To minimize the usually high maintenance effort of a terminology service, we developed an automated CI/CD pipeline for converting clinical and biomedical terminologies in an SPHN-compatible way. Hospitals, research infrastructure providers, as well as any other data providers, can download a terminology bundle (currently composed of SNOMED CT, LOINC, UCUM, ATC, ICD-10-GM, and CHOP) and deploy it in their local terminology service. The distributed service architecture allows each party to fulfill their local IT and security requirements, while still having an up-to-date interoperable stack of SPHN-compliant terminologies. In the future, more terminologies and mappings will be added to the terminology service according to the needs of the SPHN community. View Full-Text
