  1. Core terminology content development including mapping to standards (code mapping)
  2. Specialized domain content development (including subsetting of content, expansion of content, etc.)
  3. Mapping of user requirements to specific concepts (field mapping)
  4. Deployment of content within the software platform (including searching within forms, data capture tools, etc.)
  5. Meta-data modeling and information modeling including schema design
  6. Ontolological work including building of aggregate indicators and measures (including maps to standard quality measures, etc.)
  7. Reporting/Analysis using common algorithms, formulae and concepts
  8. Transactional translation or tagging for on-the-fly encoding of concepts including natural language processing

#1, 3, and 4 are minimally essential for success of the platform. Currently, different players perform these functions.
