The healthcare IT world uses a totally different language. Remember when you were a medical student and you had to learn acronyms like BID, PO, TID, QHS, and PRN? That was just the beginning.
Well, if you're interested in healthcare IT, get familiar with many more acronyms. Here's a brief teaser:
ANSI: American National Standards Institute
EHR: Electronic Health Record
EMR: Electronic Medical Record
CDA: Clinical Document Architecture
CPT: Current Procedural Terminology
HL7: Health Level Seven
ICD-9: International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems
NLM: National Library of Medicine
XML: The Extensible Markup Language
Now, if you can define these acronyms, then that's great! However, can you explain what each represents? That's where it can get quite complex. Also, can you really drill down into the current issues that surround the complex Health IT challenges?
