Terminology Mapping

Apelon’s team of clinical informatics professionals can map your legacy data to standard terminologies quickly and accurately.

The Problem

There are lots of good reasons to use standard terminologies like SNOMED CT, LOINC, and RxNorm: to comply with Meaningful Use requirements, to integrate legacy data silos, to unleash the next generation of analytics. But your legacy data – and you have a lot of legacy data – needs to be converted, and you don’t want to spend the next ten years doing it.

The Solution

Apelon’s clinical informatics professionals can quickly analyze and map your existing data catalogs to the standard terminologies named in the Meaningful Use requirements. Our team includes physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, medical technologists, and more.

Three Step Mapping Process

  1. We perform a data domain analysis to identify your data’s strengths and weaknesses
  2. Our multidisciplinary team creates an initial map with industry-leading tools including Apelon DTS and Clinical Architecture’s Symedical®
  3. We work with your stakeholders to resolve the ambiguous and unmapped items

Once your initial backlog is cleared out, you can either retain us to perform the ongoing maintenance mapping or we can train your team members.
