  1. Primary Care Standards Conference, Doubletree Hotel Canal Street New Orleans. November 1 and 2,1995., report by Rob Wilson

    A conference to establish standards for clinical vocabularies in primary care, was held at the Doubletree Hotel Canal Street New Orleans. Everyone interested in learning more about standards in primary care informatics, or in participating in the development of standards was welcome and encouraged to attend. This meeting grew out of informal discussions among leaders of AMIA,s Family Practice/Primary Care Working Group, the Primary Health Care Specialist Group of the British Computer Society, and Working Group V of IMIA (the GP Working Group).

    Department of Public Health and Primary Care, Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London SW10 9NH
    Journal of Informatics in Primary Care 1996 (September):8-13

    To start a debate on the use of GP data for purposes other than the original purpose for which it was collected.

  3. The Problem Oriented Medical Record - just a little more structure to help the world go round?

    This paper describes some of the limitations of the POMR and discusses a number of areas into which it could be extended. Critical to the future success of the EHR is the transferability of a clinical record between clinical systems without compromising the integrity and indeed admissibility of the record in a court of law. The record transferred must also not compromise the integrity of the existing records on the accepting system. Hence this paper attempts to define and clarify a set of structures which could be used in an EHR. One extension will be explored in depth - the timeline - as an example of how the other structures can be pulled together into a more clinically useful whole.

  4. Do we need a classification for Primary Care?

  6. Terminology and mapping
    • EncodeFM est un système piloté par le Dr Bob Bernstein d'Ottawa et qui offre une terminologie extensive(35), en anglais et français avec les transcodages ICD-10.
    • ICPC-Plus est produit par la Family Medicine Research Unit, dirigée par le Dr Helena Britt de l'Université de Sydney. Outre une banque de données terminologiques étendue(36) en anglais et un transcodage, ICPC-Plus offre un service d'aide au codage et de traitement de l'information.
    • Le LOCAS est une banque de données terminologiques(37) en langue française élaboré par Michel Roland, Marc Jamoulle et Bernard Dendeau dans le cadre de leurs activités de recherche au sein de la Fédération des Maisons Médicales de Belgique. La particularité de cette base est que les termes classifiés selon la CISP sont standardisés.

    - ICD - the International Classification of Diseases

  6. International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM)
    The International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) is based on the World Health Organization's Ninth Revision, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9). ICD-9-CM is the official system of assigning codes to diagnoses and procedures associated with hospital utilization in the United States. The ICD-9 is used to code and classify mortality data from death certificates.

  7. ICD-10: The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, tenth revision

    The Tenth Revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems is the latest in a series that was formalized in 1893 as the Bertillon Classification or International List of Causes of Death. A complete review of the historical background to the classification is given in Volume 2.
    While the title has been amended to make clearer the content and purpose and to reflect the progressive extension of the scope of the classification beyond diseases and injuries, the familiar abbreviation "ICD" has been retained.
    In the updated classification, conditions have been grouped in a way that was felt to be most suitable for general epidemiological purposes and the evaluation of health care.
