Digital processes – and the critical data they produce – are at the heart of many NHS Trust day-to-day operations.
The joint and inter-dependent imperatives of medical efficacy and technological capability must co-exist seamlessly in order to deliver positive outcomes for patients AND staff.
And clinical terminology technologies have a key role to play.
- It’s about capturing and recording clinical data at the point of care.
- It’s about managing local code systems, SNOMED CT and refsets.
- It’s about speeding-up implementation and adoption aligned to national NHS objectives.
- It’s about supporting more accurate reporting of ICD-10 and OPCS-4 classification codes to ensure appropriate financial reimbursement.
