Week 1 –Discussion 1 - Interoperability and Vocabulary Mapping
Vocabulary mapping supports the interoperability of health information systems by using controlled vocabularies to increase communication between these systems. Think of a scenario in which two health information systems would need to transmit data to each other. In your response:
Identify the two health information systems
Give specific examples of ten terms these systems would need to transmit to each other.
For each term identify the category (one to one, narrow to broad, broad to narrow or unmappable) that would be used as part of the vocabulary map.
