Network Based Healthcare Computing Applications
This workshop concerns data standards and minimum data sets for nursing informatics. This session reviews the Health Level Seven (HL7) standard, the University Hospital Consortium (UHC) and the Clinical Information Network (CIN). Within the context of Network Based Healthcare Computing Applications, these three forces are examined as primary factors affecting the further development of standards and minimum datasets in nursing.
In addition to a review of three critical developments affecting standards, a reconceptualization of the process and goals of current efforts in data standardization and minimum datasets will be discussed. Specifically, new methods for generating standards (user agents), meta dictionaries as large group process, meta-thesauri and maximum spanning data supersets will be discussed.
