This new title will untangle the complicated world of healthcare vocabularies, terminologies, and classification systems! Healthcare Code Sets, Clinical Terminologies, and Classification Systems takes you into the future of healthcare, with its clear representation of new technology and the growing field of healthcare informatics. In the EHR, multiple terminologies, vocabularies, and classification systems are used to create encoded data that users can access, combine, manipulate, and share. HIM professionals need to learn these key systems to prepare for the adoption of the electronic health record. This textbook explains the components comprising the infrastructure for electronic health records, taking you beyond the standard diagnosis and procedure code sets and how they interact with emerging code sets and data standards.
