Samenvatting

The urgency behind this research is twofold. Firstly, the on-going development of an aging society, which could potentially lead to a 40% workforce reduction in the Dutch public sector, and insufficient financing in the healthcare sector, which requires a participatory society in which citizens will need to start taking more responsibility regarding their healthcare. Secondly, we also live in an information society, which keeps developing itself. This brings new and innovative digital opportunities and information services, which potentially makes a participatory society viable. Yet, the development of such opportunities also brings new design requirements since life-world and systems-world are converging. Bases on explorative studies one of the requirements is the creation of clear conditions regarding the comprehensibility, usability and integration of such information technologies. More specifically, this would mean creating digitally accessible and usable terminologies in order for citizens and governmental bodies and professionals to work together for the quality of life. For healthcare this would mean creating so-called a citizen/consumer health vocabulary, a machine-readable standardized list of terms which links ´lay-language´ and the standard terms of professional terminologies.
