The Canonical Clinical Problem Statement System (CCPSS) was developed by Vanderbilt University in conjunction with the Emory University Department of Medicine and Medical Systems Development Corporation.
CCPSS is used to describe and code patient problems in a clinically meaningful way.
CCPSS is a list of problems, modifiers, and term categories. It contains over 15,000 problem terms and associated term frequencies derived from patient records.
