CEN/TC 251 Health informatics

Pre Standard

11.020   Medical sciences and health care facilities in general | 35.240.01   Application of information technology in general


This European Prestandard specifies a procedure for the registration of coding schemes used in health care for any purpose. It also specifies the allocation of a unique Health Care Coding Scheme Designator (HCD) to each registered coding scheme. A code value can thus be given an unambiguous meaning by association with an HCD. The method by which an HCD and a code value are associated is not defined by this standard. The association is achieved in any manner appropriate to the syntax used.
