Technology has more often been associated with improvements in many domains. This is particularly true in the medical and health-care industry. This is a field where data collection is performed on a daily basis. With the advent of mobile technology, several methodologies for data collection have been adopted reducing the cost and time expanded to data collection. The focus of this paper is a proposed ontology-based framework that has the ability of building a shared repository of surveys that can be used for data collection. The paper discusses iCollect, a first instantiation of the framework in the form of a survey application built for the Indigenous Health Adaptation to Climate Change (IHACC) project.
