Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 12:30 PM
Data collection, at its most efficient, requires standard nomenclature and protocols. This session seeks to explain the value of data standardization, and its impact on interoperability.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. evaluate the possibility of standardizing data collection methods used to collect health information about newborns; 2. to determine whether the names and diagnostic codes for certain disease conditions can be standardized to facilitate data collection.
