New Program Release Feature in VSAC

New Program Release Feature in VSAC. NLM Tech Bull. 2017 Nov-Dec;(419):b10.

2017 December 05 [posted]

The National Library of Medicine Value Set Authority Center (VSAC) is pleased to announce a new user interface that displays program releases of value sets on the VSAC homepage. Additionally, our Search Value Sets page has a sleek new look and intuitive filters for program-related value sets. All functionality and underlying data remain the same.

With this new user interface, we display our current program releases, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) Value Sets and Health Level Seven International Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (HL7 C-CDA) Value Sets, and introduce our newest program release of value sets, CMS Hybrid Value Sets. Core Clinical Data Elements and Hybrid Measures use a set of core clinical data elements, clinical variables from electronic health records (EHRs), that are routinely collected and can be extracted for use in risk-adjusted hospital-level hybrid outcome measures.

Do you have a program, quality measures, data registries or other applications that specify value sets you published in VSAC?
Learn more about creating a program release of your value sets in VSAC, display your published value sets in a program release on the front page of VSAC, and enable easy search and download for your value set consumers.
