Req-276: Maintenance and Versioning of Standard Terminologies
Release Package: 2013 Format


Release Package:

2013 Format

Requirement ID:

Req-276

Title:

Maintenance and Versioning of Standard Terminologies

Description:

STATEMENT: Enable version control according to customized policies to ensure maintenance of utilized standards.
This includes the ability to accommodate changes to terminology sets as the source terminology undergoes its natural update process (new codes, retired codes, redirected codes). Such changes need to be cascaded to clinical content embedded in templates, custom formularies, etc., as determined by local policy.
DESCRIPTION: Version control allows for multiple sets or versions of the same terminology to exist and be distinctly recognized over time.
Terminology standards are usually periodically updated, and concurrent use of different versions may be required. Since the meaning of a concept can change over time, it is important that retrospective analysis and research maintains the ability to relate changing conceptual meanings. If the terminology encoding for a concept changes over time, it is also important that retrospective analysis and research can correlate the different encodings to ensure the permanence of the concept. This does not necessarily imply that complete older versions of the terminology be kept in the EHR-S, only access to the changes needs to be maintained.
It should be possible to retire deprecated versions when applicable business cycles are completed while maintaining obsolescent code sets. An example use of this is for possible claims adjustment throughout the claim's lifecycle.
