while minimizing overall effort and cost. Since 2004, EVS has worked within caBIG® to develop and promote use of state-of-the-art terminology standards, content, and tools throughout our community. EVS is now widely used: * By NCI and its partners in caBIG®, NIH, other federal agencies, and other U.S. and international biomedical, academic, standards and research organizations * To create, extend, subset, map, access and publish biomedical terminology and ontology * For basic, translational, and clinical research, clinical care, epidemiology, public health, administration, and public information. These pages describe many of the users and uses of EVS resources and services, which are mostly freely available without restriction and therefore not always possible to track.
