Objective: Medical narratives entry is a major issue to be solved in developing an electronic medical record system operating
in practice, as they are, in large part, described in a free-text format. The issue can be dealt with in three aspects: to improve
the reusability by structuring medical narratives, to support clinical pragmatics in medical fields, and to reduce the burden of data
entry. With the aspects having in mind, this paper purports to present an ontological method for better way of medical narratives
entry. Methods: We developed an ontology for which medical knowledge is structurally represented. Then we can enter medical
narrative texts with commands of the controlled natural language operable on the ontology model. Results: Many theoretical
studies on free-text entry were reviewed, based on which an authoring and editing tool for natural language description operable
on the ontology model has been developed and tested. The performance of the tool is satisfactory within the limit of the domain
models we developed here. Conclusion: The results of this paper are contributive for clinicians to make an easy entry of medical
narratives as far as the ontology model covers their knowledge domain. It is also expected that the cost in recording medical
narratives might be considerably reduced and data quality can be improved.
