Terminology Services – The Hidden Healthcare Translator

Mar 20, 2019

Connecting two Health IT systems together is just the first step to making them interoperable. Often, the information stored in each system adheres to a different data standard. Thus, to make the information useful, it needs to be translated so that each system can understand what the other is saying. Terminology Services is that translator.
