Collections

Overview

The API exposes a representation of collections, which are versioned containers of references to concepts and mappings. Note that sources are used to actually author concepts and mappings, whereas collections are used to organize existing concepts and mappings into useful logical groupings, such as a diabetes value set or a Community Maternal-Child Starter Set. Collections reference concepts and mappings by combining one or more expressions that return concepts and mappings. Some expressions may be processed dynamically, meaning that the concepts and mappings in a collection may change automatically.

In the future, collections will be used to represent a variety of intensional and extensional value sets, where intensional value sets define a set of properties that are evaluated (or “expanded”) to determine the collection members, and extensional value sets explicitly state each member of the value set. At this time, collections can be used to represent any type of extensional value set by adding individual concepts and mappings into a collection. Currently, collections support a limited number of intensional value sets, where the expression that is added cannot be dynamic, such as a source version or collection version.

Expressions

  • Expressions have been split into Phase 1 and Future Phases, where phase 1 includes expressions that result in either individual concepts and mappings or static lists of concepts and mappings (such as a source or collection version). Expressions follow the REST API syntax.

  • Phase 1 support for expressions:

    • Expressions to add individual concepts:

      • Latest version of a concept: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/concepts/:concept/

      • Specific concept version: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/concepts/:concept/:conceptVersion/

    • Expressions to add individual mappings:

      • Latest version of a mapping: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/mappings/:mapping/

      • Specific mapping version: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/mappings/:mapping/:mappingVersion/

  • Possible support for expressions in Future Phases:

    • Expressions to add individual concepts:

      • Concept from a specific source version: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/:sourceVersion/concepts/:concept/

    • Expressions to add individual mappings:

      • Mapping from a specific source version: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/:sourceVersion/mappings/:mapping/

    • Expressions to add concepts from a source or collection version:

      • All concepts from specific source version: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/:sourceVersion/concepts/

      • All concepts from specific collection version: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/:collectionVersion/concepts/

    • Expressions to add mappings from a source or collection version:

      • All concepts from specific mapping version: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/:collectionVersion/mappings/

      • All concepts from specific collection version: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/:collectionVersion/mappings/

    • Expressions to add all mappings for a concept:

      • All direct mappings for a concept owned by the same source as the concept: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/concepts/:concept/mappings/

      • All direct and inverse mappings for a concept owned by the same source as the concept: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/concepts/:concept/mappings/?includeInverseMappings=true

    • Parameters or filters may be included to filter the results. For example:

      • All public concepts matching search criteria: /concepts/?q=malaria

      • All concepts from a single source matching search criteria: /orgs/CIEL/sources/CIEL/concepts/?class=Drug

    • Expressions to add concepts based on relationships

      • E.g. All concepts that are descendants of a concept

    • Expressions to add concepts from the top-level search endpoints

      • All public concepts that meet specific criteria: /concepts/?q=:criteria

      • All public direct mappings for a concept: /mappings/?fromConcept=:concept

    • Expressions to add all resources from a source or collection with a single expression:

      • All concepts and mappings from a source: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/[:sourceVersion/]

      • All concepts and mappings from a collection: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]

    • Expressions to add concepts and mappings from the HEAD of a source or collection

      • All concepts from head of source: /orgs/:org/sources/:source/concepts/

      • All concepts from head of collection: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/concepts/

      • All mappings from head of source: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/mappings/

      • All mappings from head of collection: /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/mappings/

Implementation Considerations

  • Collections may contain concepts that share the same code, which means that to ensure unique identification of a concept, the owner and source must also be included. Ideally, the API can support use of only the concept ID if the ID is unique within the collection, and it would always support the fully specified form. Here are examples of using the fully specified owner, repository and ID to reference a concept within a collection: * /orgs/CIEL/collections/DiabetesStarterSet/concepts/CIEL:CIEL:1234/ * /orgs/CIEL/collections/DiabetesStarterSet/concepts/OCL:MaternalHealthCoreDataset:1234/

  • Mapping UUIDs are unique across all of OCL, so mappings can be uniquely identified the same as they are within a source:

    • /orgs/CIEL/collections/DiabetesStarterSet/mappings/kdi03993fkie919u1/

Versioning of collections

  • The current state of a collection’s metadata and all of its referenced resources is referred to as the HEAD. All changes to a collection’s metadata or references are made to the HEAD, and prior collection versions are not affected. The collection HEAD is used when no collection version is otherwise specified in a request. For example, GET /user/collections/MyCollection/ will retrieve the HEAD whereas GET /user/collections/MyCollection/v1.0/ will retrieve the collection version with an ID of “v1.0”.

  • At any time, the current state of a collection may be saved by creating a new collection version (e.g. POST /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/versions/). Metadata and resource references from a specific version of a collection may be retrieved by explicitly stating a version number (e.g. GET /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/:version/ or GET /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/:version/concepts/).

  • Collections versions can be marked as “released” or “retired” to indicate to users how the contents of a collection version are intended to be used. Any number of versions may be marked as “released”.

Future Considerations

  • Collections should support multi-lingual names and descriptions in the future

Get a single collection

  • Get a collection owned by a user or organization, where an optional :collectionVersion is “latest” or a specific ID of a collection version. If :collectionVersion is not provided, HEAD is assumed.

GET /users/:user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]
GET /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]
GET /user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]
  • Parameters (only applicable when including child concepts or mappings in the response)

    • includeConcepts (optional) boolean - set to true to include the concepts owned by this collection in a child attribute named concepts

    • includeMappings (optional) boolean - set to true to include the mappings owned by this collection in a child attribute named mappings

    • includeReferences (optional) boolean - set to true to include the references owned by this collection in a child attribute named references

    • offset (optional) integer - zero-based index of the concepts and mappings to return; default is 0; note that this is only applicable if includeConcepts or includeMappings is set to true

    • updatedSince (optional) datetime - ISO 8601 timestamp (e.g. 2011-11-16T14:26:15Z) that filters the returned concepts and mappings to only those updated after the specified date/time; note that this is only applicable if includeConcepts or includeMappings is set to true

    • includeRetired (optional) boolean - set to true to include retired mappings or concepts in the response; note that this is only applicable if includeConcepts or includeMappings is set to true

    • limit (optional) numeric - set to the maximum number of concepts and mappings to return with the source; note that this is only applicable if includeConcepts or includeMappings is set to true

Response

  • Typical response – with includeMappings, includeConcepts and includeReferences set to false

  • Notes

    • This only deactivates the collection using an internal flag. This effectively hides the organization and any data or metadata it owns, but does not delete it from the system.

    • Authentication information for a user with administrative access to the collection must be passed with the request. E.g. curl -u "username" "/users/johndoe/"

Response

  • Status: 204 No Content

Get single version of a collection

Get single concept from a collection

  • Get a single concept from a collection, where an optional :collectionVersion is “latest” or a collection version ID.

GET /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/:concept/
GET /users/:user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/:concept/
GET /user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/:concept/
  • Notes

    • The results are identical to fetching a concept directly from a source (i.e. GET /user/sources/MySource/concepts/123/), with two exceptions:

      • The concept mappings (both direct and inverse) are pulled from the collection, not from the original source.

      • Additional metadata are added to the concept that point back to the collection from which it is referenced (e.g. concept_reference_url, collection_url, collection, collection_owner, collection_owner_type).

    • :concept is of the form concept_id (e.g. “A15.1”) or owner:source[sourceVersion]:concept_id (e.g. “WHO:ICD-10:A15.1”). The simple form may only be used if the concept ID is unique within the collection, otherwise it results in an error.

    • The version of the concept returned is determined by the expression that added this concept to the collection

Example Request

  • Get a single concept from a collection with a simple concept ID

GET /orgs/OCL/collections/Community-MCH/concepts/1234/
  • Get a single concept from a collection with a fully specified concept ID

GET /orgs/OCL/collections/Community-MCH/concepts/CIEL:CIEL:1234/

List concepts referenced in a collection

  • List concepts referenced in a collection, where an optional :collectionVersion is “latest” or a collection version ID

GET /orgs/:org/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/
GET /users/:user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/
GET /user/collections/:collection/[:collectionVersion/]concepts/
  • Parameters

    • verbose (optional) string - default is false; set to true to return full concept details instead of the summary

    • q (optional) string - Search criteria

    • sortAsc/sortDesc (optional) string - sort results according to one of the following attributes: “bestMatch” (deafult), “lastUpdate”, “name”, “id”, “datatype”, “conceptClass”

    • conceptClass (optional) string - filter results to those within a particular concept class, e.g. “laboratory procedure”

    • datatype (optional) string

    • locale (optional) string - filter results to those with a name for the given locale, e.g. “en”, “fr”

    • includeRetired (optional) integer - 1 or 0, default 0

    • mapcode (optional) string - e.g. IHTSDO:SNOMED-CT:123455

    • includeMappings (optional) string - default is “false” (even if “verbose” is set to “true”); set to “true” to return direct mappings contained in this collection

    • includeInverseMappings (optional) string - default is “false” (even if “verbose” is set to “true”); set to “true” to return inverse mappings contained in this collection

  • Notes

    • The results are identical to listing concepts directly from a source (i.e. GET /user/sources/MySource/concepts/), with the exception that additional metadata are added that point back to the collection from which they are referenced (e.g. concept_reference_url). Note that “concept_reference_url” always uses the fully specified format (e.g. “WHO:ICD-10:A15.1”).

    • If verbose is set to true, results are the same as fetching a single concept

Examples

  • List concepts in the latest version of a collection

GET /orgs/CIEL/collections/StarterSet/concepts/
  • List concepts in a specific version of a collection

GET /orgs/CIEL/collections/StarterSet/v1.0/concepts/
