6 Flexibility Coding systems: Supports HL7 Infobutton standard
Problem Codes (Diagnoses) ICD-9-CM: 12,000 codes SNOMED CT® CORE Problem List Subset: 5,000 codes Medication Codes RXCUI (RxNorm Concept Unique Identifier) NDC (National Drug Code) Supports HL7 Infobutton standard

7 Patient View from EHR - Diagnoses

17 Future Enhancements XML Web Services Lab tests
English (possibly Spanish) LOINC

18 Advantages Provides relevant, authoritative patient information at the point of care or from home May play a role in “meaningful use” Utilizes coding systems already in place One-time change Supports the HL7 Infobutton standard Free to use, no licensing fees
