Whenever medical data is integrated from multiple sources, it is regarded good practice to separate data from information about its meaning, such as designations, definitions or permissible values (in short: metadata). However, the ways in which applications work with metadata are imperfect: Many applications do not support fetching metadata from externalized sources such as metadata repositories. In order to display human-readable metadata in any application, we propose not to change the application, but to provide a library that makes a change to the user interface. The goal of this work is to provide a way to "inject" the meaning of metadata keys into the web-based frontend of an application to make it "metadata aware".
