Clinical Data Standards & Electronic Medical Records
LHNCBC is a leader in the development, enhancement, and adoption of clinical vocabulary standards. The CORE Problem List Subset of SNOMED CT is published in the UMLS as a specific content view. RxTerms facilitates the use of RxNorm as an interface for medication orders. Inter-terminology mapping promotes the use of standard terminologies by creating maps to administrative terminologies, which allows re-use of encoded clinical data. The Newborn Screening Guide combines terminology and electronic messaging systems to facilitate care and research related to newborn screening. A separate effort focuses on the development of a consumer-friendly medical problem and procedure terminology. LHNCBC continues to play an important role in the UMLS project in research related to the various UMLS knowledge sources and providing support in UMLS production and user support.
