The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Medicine in Catalan brings together key players in the sector


Costaisa formed part of a group of experts invited to participate in the Workshop on Strategic Reflection to support the maintenance and promotion of the Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Medicine (DEMCAT).

The aim of the workshop was to analyse the mechanisms for keeping the dictionary up to date and to promote its diffusion and integration in health care practice, especially the incorporation of its terminology checker at clinical stations.

The experts invited to take part in the event are all leading voices in health care practice, scientific communication, linguistic terminology or the provision of information services, like Costaisa.

Jordi Buisan, Director of Business Development at Costaisa, explained how the checker was integrated with the clinical management solution, Chaman, which is used at over 400 centres and for which the decision to begin internalisation was made a few years ago.

Costaisa also recently signed an international distribution agreement for the medical documentation services provided by the Catalan company BITAC, which specialises in coding standards for medical and nursing terminology.
