SciBite is pleased to announce the inclusion of an introductory set of CDISC vocabularies in the TERMite 6.3 release, a new set of clinical ontologies that you can use within our semantic technologies.

CDISC (Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium) controlled terminologies are widely used for study planning, data collection and analysis, and have been adopted in regulatory submission to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and by other international regulatory agencies.

Our high-quality vocabularies and ontologies provide the critical foundation which enables SciBite’s TERMite named entity recognition engine to accurately detect important topics within biomedical text, as well as data entry. Each vocabulary is enhanced by a combination of our in-house and experienced ontologist and biocurators, and our proprietary ontology enrichment software.

The CDISC vocabularies are already being used by our customers for data entry, for example to power autocomplete for bespoke metadata entry forms, and they can also be used for entity extraction use-cases.
