The HPO is widely used to phenotype patients. It remains
unclear how precise and reproducible HPO phenotyping by different
persons is. With the Reliable HPO, we want to shed light on this
issue. We provide some 'health records' of different fictive patients
and encourage you to try to assign HPO symptoms to the patients. The
project also aims at an improvement of the HPO - with your help, we
will become able to identify 'bad' or missing terms.
Please provide your e-mail address and some basic information
about you - with this, we can avoid redundant entries for the same
patient by the same user and can perform some statistics. We will not
use your e-mail address for anything else unless you check the
'please contact me' box. This box allows you to add suggestions and
questions and discuss them with us. If you are concerned about your
privacy, you are free to enter a fake address (but we obviously
cannot contact you in this case).
The aim of this study is not to obtain the best possible HPO
phenotypes for a patient but to find out how different symptoms
assigned by users from different disciplines and with different
experience with the HPO are. There is no true or false - so don't be
We provide health records in German and
English. There is no overlap between them.
Thank you very much for your help!
