Internet-aware File Naming Conventions

File naming conventions have evolved from systems optimized for paper or index cards to ones attuned to computer file managers and, most recently, natural language processors. Current best practices build names in ways that are internet-safe, file-system optimized, and easiest to search and browse in disk directories, website management systems, online databases and internet search engines. Please see and consider the linked file naming guide, which draws upon international (ISO) standards, Internet best practices, AHS CIS guides, and AHS Health Information Management procedures to improve the usefulness of shared digital file collections for all stakeholders.
