MedicAlert Foundation International and CAP STS Collaborate to Standardize Emergency Medical Information
Date:10/7/2009

safe care, medical professionals need to know about a patient's medical conditions, allergies, and medications. Our mission is to save lives by making essential medical information available whenever it is needed. Our collaboration with CAP STS advances our mission."

ARRA incentives advocate standards-based solutions that enable the meaningful use of HIT, although the federal definition of "meaningful use" has not been finalized. In August, the HIT Standards Committee, the federal advisory panel on HIT standards, endorsed recommendations on how providers may electronically record a physician's observations to qualify for federal bonuses. The recommendations include ICD-9 or SNOMED CT in 2011, or ICD-10 or SNOMED CT in 2013, and SNOMED CT in 2015.

"We do know that safe and effective exchange of health information is important for patients and health care providers," Kabat said. "Access to standards-based solutions that enable the safe exchange is a necessity."

STS is a division of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), the original creator of SNOMED CT. CAP, with a 40-year history of terminology development and through its STS division, focuses on consulting, education, and other services related to SNOMED CT and other terminologies and classifications where SNOMED is often used collaboratively.

"MedicAlert Foundation's commitment to enhance the interoperability of its life-saving service demonstrates leadership in the use of how health care information technology and standards can directly benefit patients," said Kevin Donnelly, CAP STS vice president and general manager. "Our collaboration is a perfect match, as both organizations have a long history of providing products and services focused on improving and saving lives of citizens around the world."
