This European Standard specifies messages for electronic information exchange between computer systems using coding schemes in healthcare. It describes a message that may be used to populate or update the content of a coding scheme at user applications.
This European Standard is limited to a definition of the content of a message that serves the following functions:
a) to populate a new coding scheme where individual entries are composed of a code value related to zero or more (textual) code meanings,
b) to add new entries into an existing coding scheme where these entries are composed of new code values and their associated meanings,
c) to mark existing code value entries as no longer active,
d) to mark new and existing code meanings to be of a certain status (e.g. preferred, obsolete, etc.),
e) to mark new and existing code values with dates of applicability,
f) to mark new and existing code meanings with dates of applicability.
This European Standard provides a specification of a message that may be used to populate or update a mapping between a single code value in a coding scheme and simple list of code values that together have an equivalent meaning in the same coding scheme. This meets the requirements of ENV1614 - Healthcare Informatics - Structure for nomenclature, classification and coding of properties in clinical laboratory sciences.
This European Standard provides a specification of a message that may be used to populate or update a mapping showing equivalence between code values in two different coding schemes. The specification supports mappings in which:
a) a single code value in one (source) coding scheme is mapped to a single equivalent code value within another (target) coding scheme,
b) a single code value in the source coding scheme is mapped to a set of code values which together represent an equivalent concept within the target coding scheme.
