The Challenges for Terminology Standardization Continue to Grow
A significant challenge facing the healthcare community is the ability to efficiently share and use data across clinical care processes, business functions, and systems. To address this challenge, there is an increased emphasis and effort both nationally and within healthcare organizations to develop and adopt standard terminologies.
As payers and providers adopt standard terminologies for multiple departmental business initiatives, they are starting to recognize the need to align and govern terminology strategies at the enterprise level.
A Single Source for Standardization
Enterprise Terminology Management enables the creation of a single, integrated, and trusted source of terminology truth across an enterprise. A clean, normalized data set ensures departmental systems are relying on current, approved, and up-to-date terminologies, maps, and value sets – a prerequisite for today’s modern healthcare IT environment.
