Abstract: Population-level health care requires accurate identification of patient populations of interest. This is typically performed using "value sets", which identify all codes or terms from a health vocabulary that correspond to a population definition. We developed an infrastructure for managing value sets based on a clinical interface terminology (CIT), utilizing maps from CIT terms to standardized vocabularies and the internal semantic structure of those vocabularies. In this presentation, we describe this infrastructure and our experiences developing CIT-based value sets.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Understand the challenges in creating and maintaining value sets to be used in conjunction with clinical interface terminologies, and strategies for addressing them.
