Written by // John Carter Thursday, August 27, 2015

More terms and relationships in new approach

MedDRA hierarchy in the Apelon DTS Editor

Looking at MedDRA as a terminologist, I see some things I really like and some things I wish were different. We just overhauled the way we represent MedDRA in DTS, and the new schema helps DTS users take advantage of the good parts and more easily work around the rest.

Apelon's COM Reviews Terminology: 2012 & Beyond

For healthcare executives, what are the new buzzwords and terms to know?
 
Every organization that has implemented an electronic clinical system - such as electronic health records (EHRs), clinician order entry, lab or radiology management - has had to implement standardized terminology. That terminology is in use every single day to support structured data entry and summary data reporting. Unfortunately, despite its widespread use and necessity, terminology has not been given much strategic consideration.
 
But that's changing.

Healthcare Terminology: A Year in Review

Initiatives funded through the Office of the National Coordinator on Health Information Technology (ONC)1 in 2011 have put a bright light on healthcare IT, primarily through the specifications and standards underpinning ONC's stage I and II (and beyond) meaningful use (MU) requirements. 2011 also saw attention on the requirements to migrate from the decades-old ICD-9-CM to ICD-10 (CM and PCS). Both MU and the ICD migration highlight the need for better processes with improved terminology management.
