Developing Standardized Physiologic Assessments.
A terminology for nursing assessments does not exist to support exchange of information and research. A team of nurse informaticts collaborated to create a standard for medical/surgical assessment terms coded in LOINC and SNOMED CT. Nursing assessments represented 106 observation (50% new LOINC), and 348 Values (20% New SNOMED CT) organized into fifteen panels (86% new LOINC).
