Week 2 – Discussion 1 – Electronic Health Record Nomenclatures
Refer to Guided Exercise 12: Tabs on the Medcin Nomenclature Pane (p .87) of the text. Follow steps 1-6 in the Medcin Software. After you complete the exercise, in a 250- 300 word post, explain how the EHR nomenclatures differ from other code sets and classification systems in several ways. Discuss some of the unique features of nomenclatures and how they are used to identify and cross reference and communicate with other systems. Respond to two of your classmates’ posts. Please note: Access the software early in the week in case you encounter a problem. This way you have time to resolve the issue before the discussion is due.
