Consumer Health Vocabulary (CHV) Project

 

These are sites that I developed while working with Dr. Qing Zeng in 2009-2010.

They are designed to provide access to the Open Access Collaborative - Consumer Health Vocabulary (which I had very little to do with). The CHV is a list of vocabulary words used by consumers to discuss health problems. It has been incorporated with the UMLS (unified medical language system) Metathesauraus.

My involvement was restricted to the development, deployment and maintenance of these two sites.
