healthcare versus amenity

The aim of this proposal is also to group all healthcare related POIs into one key (except medical stores which should be placed in shop=*). At the moment, the key amenity=* is used for a multitude of unrelated subjects. It seems more logical to use different keys for different areas whenever possible.

Of course, it could be said that a lot of healthcare related POIs are already tagged using amenity=*. Therefore a renderer should at first continue to support these keys as well as the new healthcare=* (and shop=*). When editing, the proposed tagging could at first be used in addition to the respective amenity values (for example tagging a POI with both amenity=doctors and healthcare=doctor), to ensure that the POIs are rendered.

When the new tagging schema is finally established and most editors and renderers support it, the old tags could be replaced using a bot.


The idea is based on several discussions in the german forums [1], [2] and Proposed features/Medical, Key:healthcare.

Tagging

healthcare=*

value description
healthcare=alternative someone practicing alternative or complementary medicine but is not a medical practitioner or a place where alternative or complementary medicine is practiced that does not fit into the other categories (except healthcare=yes)
healthcare=audiologist audiologist; if linked with a shop please use shop=hearing_aids instead
healthcare=blood_bank blood bank
healthcare=centre group of medical practices
healthcare=clinic clinic or polyclinic
healthcare=dentist Replaces amenity=dentist.
healthcare=doctor A medical practitioner — also known as doctor of medicine, medical doctor, or simply doctor.
Replaces amenity=doctors.
healthcare=hospital Replaces amenity=hospital.
healthcare=midwife midwife.
healthcare=occupational_therapist Someone who practices occupational therapy but is not a medical practitioner.
healthcare=optometrist optometrist; If linked with a shop please use shop=optician instead.
healthcare=physiotherapist Someone who practices physical therapy but is not a medical practitioner.
healthcare=podiatrist Someone who practices podiatry but is not a medical practitioner.
healthcare=psychotherapist Someone who practices psychotherapy but is not a medical practitioner.
healthcare=rehabilitation medical rehabilitation facility; should not be used for a wellness clinic or hotel
healthcare=speech_therapist Someone who practices speech and language therapy.
healthcare=yes General healthcare facility. To be used only if specifics are unknown or can not be covered by the tagging schema. If this value is used, it is recommended to include some details with the description=* or fixme=* key.

shop=*

value description
shop=medical medical store / medical house

Specialities of medical practitioners or other medical facilities

The speciality of a medical practitioner (informal the doctor) or a medical facility can be tagged using the key healthcare:speciality=*. The following table shows values which could be used in connection with this key. The table is derived from the Directive 2005/36/EC of the European Parliament on the recognition of professional qualifications [3]. (With additions from Wikipedia.)

The first column of the table shows the proposed value.

The second and third columns show a short description of the respective field of specialization. These terms are taken from the column headings of section 5.1.3 in the german resp. english version of the EU directive. The remaining columns show the officially recognized titles for medical specializations in the different countries within the EU.


If a medical practitioner or a medical facility covers several specializations, they could be separated by a semicolon (';') e.g. healthcare:speciality=radiology;radiotherapy

against

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. Joto 18:48, 30 October 2010 (BST) -- "specialty" is much too generic a term. At least use "heathcare_speciality" or "medical_specialty" or something like it.
Hi Jochen. So what is the problem exactly? If we make a specific healthcare_speciality=* the same tag can't be reused for other keys and it is very long :( --!i! 20:45, 30 October 2010 (BST)
It can't be reused for other tags, because there is no common values here. Don't mingle different things, its confusing. Say you look at a list of values for the "specialty" tag: Ok, there are 10.000 "heart", 8.000 "beef", 5.000 "surgery", and 4.000 "antiques". What? Lets say you have a doctor with specialty=heart and a restaurant with specialty=burger on the same node. Doesn't work. And even if that is discouraged, it makes it harder to work with. Want to find all speciality doctors? You have to always take two tags into account instead of just one. And long tags are good, because they are self-descriptive. Joto 08:30, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Well ok but I'm still not sure if a prefix will solve this problem cause so everybody interested in all details of this key has to know what exact key is used for further details. And yes they are self-descriptive but there are even users that have to enter it by hand and that have to keep the name of the tag in mind. Of course there are absolutly pros in your idea, I guess it is a problem on a higher more general level of the OSM tagging system. --!i! 08:58, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
After a discussion we added your request to a healthcare:speaciality=* to make this tag more key specific.--!i! 14:27, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Why would you want to put a doctor and a restaurant in the same node? --Fkv 09:45, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Why do they have to stay this way? We thinking about a soft migration and we hope the pros like more detailed infos and a seperate key space healthcare=* will improve the design of the OSM data model. Isn't it in the nature of a wiki like project to reinvent something when it lacks something? --!i! 17:24, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. as far as amenity=pharmacy is concerned --Ulfm 15:07, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Due to the critics of multiple users, we changed our proposal and removed the shop=pharmacy part cause it isn't the central point of this proposal. We accept that this need still further discussions--!i! 16:52, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. This proposal should be extensible and more generic, for example it does not integrate medical amenities or support other medicinal systems as the western. More specific specialities schould be added as a subkey of speciality=*. I am working on a version which address these shortcomings. --Fabi2 21:38, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Hm? Why not? This proposal can be easily extented with other medical systems. Just add a new healthcare value S.A.L. 11:18, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
No. There are facilities, which use more the one medicinal system and may have different specialities for each one. Where speciality=* then belongs to? How to discriminate a personon e.g. therapist from a multi therapy facility? --Fabi2 21:55, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
The problem is that you can not add such a tag afterwards, why you don't know to which medicinal system the data belongs to. Evene when now some thigs are emergency fixed, this proposal has no clear scheme for complex medical map objects. --Fabi2 21:26, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
You are right and we talked a lot on the talk page before the vote Fabian. This proposal is planned as a next step to allow the users to add the most common medical institutions. Yes there is a lack on defining the medical system but for keeping the model (actually) easy to the mappers we decided in this simple scheme of 'normal' and 'alternative' medcine which isn't perfect in every way. As you can read below other mappers are already unhappy with the current level of detail --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 09:25, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. the correct translation for "arzt" is not "doctor". this is an academical title. The correct translation is "physican".--CMartin 12:30, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, you are right. healthcare=physician was in fact our first choice, but it is AE. In OSM we use BE. The alternatives would be "general practitioner" (Hausarzt) or "medical practitioner". For simplicity we chose the colloquial term "doctor" that is not 100% correct. Please use the discussion page for further discussion. --Reclus 12:54, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
AFAIK this is a misunderstanding. This proposal supports this kind your style of listing that is very common in the OSM data model. Please have a look at the header lines at #Specialities of medical practitioners or other medical facilities. --!i! 16:50, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
My reason for opposing the proposal was clearly written. The reason is both for editors, and for searching, and allow for a much more dynamic data model. Basically all the values you have listed as healthcare:specialities can be combined in any way, making x^n different values to the tag, while a healthcare:<speciality of choise>=yes/no can be used both to indicate positive (they have this speciality) and a negative (they definitely does not have this speciality) and further values can also with time be of interest such as days of week (healthcare:radiology=monday,wednesday,friday indicating no radiology on tuesdays and thursdays). Your proposal is too complicated and static, you need to make it more dynamic. --Skippern 17:03, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Please let's continue the discussion at Talk:Proposed features/Healthcare#To complicated and static to keep this list clean --!i! 17:20, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. Von der Sache her recht gut, aber etwas zuviel des Guten. Die Features sprechen wohl eher studierte Mediziner an als denn den normalen Karten-Benutzer an. Vieles läßt sich einfacher und verständlicher z.B. über den offenen Tag name=* definieren. Leider kann man nur das Gesamtpaket voten, schade! -- --R-michael 16:31, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
Hi, sry but this is how the proposal process works... .
You say it's to complicated. Well yes the medcine and the distinguish of different types is complexe. To avoid mistakes we decided to work on the EU reference and so we got this professional terms. A few lines above other users say we had to use even more professional english terms that are even more unknown for example in Germany. But you have to keep in mind that it is described in every language so IMHO easy to find what you are looking for. Later it will become part of the editors and so nice to add via a edit form. The problem with your suggestion of a name field is that this is bad understandable to computers :( --!i! 16:50, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. Don't "clean up" the amenity namespace by creating more keys. This only makes tags harder to learn - the categories expressed by the keys are arbitrary and need to be looked up/memorized along with the values. Instead, you should use a generic key and use documentation, rather than data model features (for example lists) to help people find them. Proper categorization is application-dependent and should not be hardcoded into the data model. --Tordanik 09:17, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes there are the two major lines if you should use seperate namespaces or not. We decedid so to group things togehter (hospitals, pharmacies, ...) and yes we believe that we should keep the amenity=* key should be used for real general infrastructure but not for things that belongs together. But you are right this might become a problem by conflicts with other namespaces e.g. social_facility=*. --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 10:52, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Since you're a member of the Wiki team, would you mind moving all this discussion junk to the discussion page, mine below included? Thanks! --achadwick
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. I like some of the principle but I'm voting no because I think it's badly constructed, will be inflexible in practice, and would be annoyingly fiddly to implement. Rather than working with existing usage, it replaces the well-established amenity=doctors, amenity=hospital and amenity=dentist without there being a real need. You talk about a soft migration, but this entire proposal encourages bot edits. Horribly, it throws every sort of healthcare conceivable into the same pudding regardless of physical scale, civic or national importance or whether the modalities even work, which makes creating any sort of sensible map a tangled mess of additional, duplicate style rules to catch all the cross-cutting requirements. It doesn't even respect its own established usage (usage dictates physician, but proposal says doctor, for example!). It makes use of loathsome semicolon;separated;lists for multiple specialisms which existing systems generally do not parse: ⚘please please please⚘ follow the foo:bar=yes/no/whatever pattern established by amenity=fuel or amenity=recycling instead: this would permit sub-specialities as well as simple yes/no values. --achadwick 15:16, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Aren't things like the red cross a trademark of the red cross and medical places need to use a green cross? -- JohnSmith 03:09, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Hi John, well there are a few restrictmens on the symbol just to avoid it in war (e.g. stealth sabotage teams protected by the symbol). I don't see further copyright problems [4] --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 10:44, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
I said trademark, not copyright... -- JohnSmith 18:30, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
I voted for the red cross but what about the Red Crystal instead? This would solve any eventual future religious debate (I'm aware the red cross has nothing to do with religion, but you know....). -- Al3xius 20:26, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh ok I didn't knew it before. But I guess it's not very widely used? Well this vote is for helping the style designers to pick up the right icon. Currently there is neither a religious nor political debate right here. It seems to be usefull to take a choice of red cross (i guess mostly europe) and RoA (mostly US?) --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 20:40, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Red cross and Red crescent have both a religious reference. Neither of them are trademarks in the meaning of trade. Both of them are internationally recognized symbols. Both of them have conditions on use (i.e. can not be used to protect non-health personel inside a war-zone). Red cross is mainly used by healthworkers in christian countries, while the red crescent do the same in muslim countries. In my opinion should Rod of Asclepius or Star of Life rather be used in OSM connections, as these symbols are religion indebendent (though I believe these have other restrictions of usage, isn't Star of Life a trademark?) --Skippern 13:22, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
There is some kind of trade restriction on the red cross in the US because of Johnson and Johnson -- JohnSmith 00:13, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Can you explain it please for non-US people, John? --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 12:08, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
Resolved, but this is still basically an international-level symbol which you're proposing to use as the default for mostly-local stuff. My vote is for the Rod of Asclepius as you probably already know. The Star of Life looks too much like an emergency vehicle symbol to me. --achadwick 15:31, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm not a US person, but the history of the red cross symbol is pretty long and boring, if you want to read up on it see wikipedia -- JohnSmith 16:08, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
