Complimentary Web Seminar
Brought to you by Health Data Management
Terminology is core to everything in healthcare—from procedures to results to diagnoses, healthcare IT systems (HIT) represent clinical concepts in various coded clinical terminologies or free text. Unfortunately, the explosive growth in HIT has resulted in patient data being scattered across an array of rapidly proliferating IT systems— each with their own way of representing clinical terms. This terminology barrier must be overcome if we are to recognize the national effort around increased interoperability, transparency, and collaboration within our healthcare system.
We will discuss why normalizing clinical and claims-based data into standard terminologies is critical in supporting forward-thinking initiatives such as big data analytics, population health management, and new delivery models that require semantic interoperability among systems.
