An excellent resource for healthcare database and system developers as well as healthcare information research and retrieval professionals is the Unified Medical Language System® through the National Library of Medicine. NLM's Unified Medical Language System® (UMLS®) project develops and distributes multi-purpose, electronic "Knowledge Sources" and associated lexical programs. System developers can use the UMLS products to enhance their applications -- in systems focused on patient data, digital libraries, Web and bibliographic retrieval, natural language processing, and decision support. Researchers will find the UMLS® products useful in investigating knowledge representation and retrieval questions.

I feel that UMLS® will be the foundation for the future of healthcare database and system development as well as healthcare information search and retrieval. Professionals interested in the healthcare information field need to monitor and participate in the development of this excellent resource.
