MedlinePlus Connect Responds to More Problem Codes
MedlinePlus Connect now delivers targeted consumer health information in response to even more problem codes! MedlinePlus Connect coverage has expanded to include the descendants of the SNOMED CT CORE Problem List Subset. Previously, the focus was on the CORE Problem Subset codes only. This expanded coverage has doubled MedlinePlus Connect’s coverage of SNOMED CT codes. Coverage of ICD-9-CM continues to grow, and MedlinePlus Connect will support ICD-10-CM in the future.
MedlinePlus Connect is a free service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This service allows health organizations and health IT providers to link patient portals and electronic health record (EHR) systems to MedlinePlus, an authoritative up-to-date health information resource for patients, families, and health care providers. MedlinePlus Connect accepts requests for information on diagnoses (problem codes), medications, and lab tests, and returns related MedlinePlus information.
