TOWARDS A STRATEGIC ALLIANCE BETWEEN DEVELOPERS OF MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY AND HEALTH CARE RECORD SYSTEMS

Objective

This project bridges the gap between developers of healthcare terminologies and healthcare information systems. A broad view on the development of medical language is needed, concerning not only storage formats but above all patient documentation and systems integration, since for real seamless care, patient records have to be understood unambiguously on all sides. A series of workshops will broaden the awareness of terminological issues and solutions in patient documentation, and initiate close and lasting cooperation between developers of medical terminology and developers of healthcare record systems. The workshops will determine the scope of the problems, recommend measures to increase interoperability of systems, encourage classification centres to take up responsibility for all terminological issues in healthcare records, and produce working prototypes showing the principles of intelligible patient data exchange.
