May 17, 2011

I wanted to make you aware that the Pharmacy e-Health Information Technology Collaborative recently submitted a set of clinical terminology codes for pharmacists’ services to the National Library of Medicine. These codes will be important in the electronic health record (EHR) system infrastructure in allowing pharmacists to document and exchange clinical information. A news article on pharmacist.com provides further information on this important initiative. Any questions should be directed to Jim Owen, our Senior Director of Professional Practice, at jowen@aphanet.org.
