Abstract: Health is a multidisciplinary domain which necessitates experts from diverse backgrounds coming together to effect optimal care delivery for patients. Such a context can benefit by being framed as a knowledge cluster. To illustrate, the case study of a health cluster research group is mapped in terms of ontology. In this way, key relationships and informational exchanges are captured and this in turn can enable more prudent use of critical knowledge assets within the cluster. This ontology is then proffered for the healthcare domain in general as the following discusses.
