ISO Health Terminology             1
  The Importance of Standards
  The Place of Terminology in the Stream

  Context as part of Information Content

  ISO TC 215 WG3

ISO Health Terminology                      2
 Health Care Is An Information Intensive

 Controlof Health Care Costs ...
 Improved Quality of Care ...
 Improved Health Outcomes ...
 Appropriate Use of Health Technology...
 Compassionate Resource Management...
... depend upon information
… Ultimately Patient Data

ISO Health Terminology                      3
 Information Beyond Practice
 Secondary Re-use as Primary A Interest
  Data Collected for Clinical Care Forms the
   Basis for Patient Experience Repositories
  The Importance of a Well Characterized,
   High Quality Patient Experience
   Repository May Exceed the Value of the
   Primary Information Many Fold

ISO Health Terminology                          4
 Repositories of Patient Information
  Disease   Natural History
  Treatment Response (non-RCT)
  Basis for Guidelines, Clinical Paths, Best
  “Just in Time” Source for Decision Support
    Have   we seen a patient just like this…
  Efficient   and Effective Care Delivery
ISO Health Terminology                          5
 Prospective Clinical Trials vs
 Patient Data Repository
  StillRequire Consistent and Comparable
  Most Reliable if Captured in and for the
   Process of Care
    Requires  Terminology Services Integrated
      into Record System
  Efficiencies   from Non Boutique Approach

 Medical Event Representation
 Clinical Concept
    The Clinical Concept subsumes
     presenting  condition
     serial course
     subsequent outcomes
    Not restricted to patient condition at arbitrary
     point, e.g.:
     admitting diagnosis
     discharge diagnosis
     follow-up status

 Value Proposition

 “Those with more detailed, reliable and
   comparable data for cost and outcome
   studies, identification of best practices,
   guidelines development, and management
   will be more successful in the

ISO Health Terminology                      19
 Terminology as Crucial Requirement
  Without  Terminology Standards...
  Health Data is non-comparable
  Health Systems cannot Interchange Data
  Secondary Uses (Research, Efficiency)
   are not possible
  Linkage to Decision Support Resources
   not Possible

 Continuum from
 Nomenclature to Classification
  Patient   Data is Highly Detailed
    Modifiers: Anatomy, Stage, Severity, Extent
    Qualifiers: Probability, Temporal Status

  Aggregate      Uses Require Categorization
    Granularity   of Classifiers
        Focused Groups and Strata for CQI/Outcomes
        Broad Statistical/Fiscal Groups

ISO Health Terminology                                21
 Familiar Points Along Continuum
 Modern Health Vocabularies

   Descriptions (SNOMED)
  Classification – Organized Aggregation of
   Descriptions into a Rubric (ICDs)
  Groupings – High Level Categories of
   Rubrics (DRGs)
