Region Zeeland & CSC
Region Zeeland has a vision to move towards a more interoperable documentation,with the nursing area is first in line. A nursing problem list and SNOMED CT® procedure code subset was created in HealthTerm, to facilitate the use of SNOMED CT® as the primary coding terminology used in care planning and other summary level clinical documentation. The use of a common list of SNOMED CT® concepts maximizes data interoperability among the wards and institutions.
Local problem list vocabularies are often expanded to satisfy specific user needs, and institutions are encouraged to map the local additionsto SNOMED CT®. This local mapping facilitates data interoperability, which is the primary driver in this project.
Since Nursing Problems based on a Subset of SNOMED CT®, does not include all the information likely to be required in an application like Clinical Suite, the next step was to add synonyms that include more clinician-friendly terms. “The project was a success and an implementation in the rest of the organization right away was a big wish from the nurses.” said LykkeBurmølle Andersen, CSC. In the US, integrating nursing documentation based on SNOMED CT® problem codes will also meet the mandate of Meaningful Use Stage One.
