SOLOR (the System Of LOgical Representation) is integrated clinical content generated from a transformation process that represents and brings together different terminology standards by using a single model that can encompass any customized content. Informaticists and developers can convert user-supplied terminologies into the single model by using open source software to produce SOLOR content.
Standardizing the standards
An integrated approach
Through integration, not replacement, of existing health standards, SOLOR decreases the costs of maintaining multiple terminologies and enables rapid responsive content development and collaboration. It also reduces the complexity of patient data representation to improve patient care and lower patient safety risk. SOLOR’s foundation is based on an open-source collaborative framework that is agile, customizable, sharable, and reusable—allowing medical professionals to spend less time being terminologists, and more time doing what they do best.
How does SOLOR work?
Achieving semantic interoperability
While many medical terminology giants create and manage medical terminologies, SOLOR integrates key terminologies into one, centralized location. Through coordination of SNOMED, LOINC, RxNorm, and other terminologies as needed, SOLOR removes ambiguity from overlapping content and presents patient data in uniformity—allowing for consistent reasoning, and consistent interaction, regardless of its source terminology.
