ISO 18104: 2003
This initiative was undertaken by a group of experts within ISO Technical Committee 215 (Health Informatics) Working Group 3 (Health Concept Representation) under the collaborative leadership of the International Medical Informatics Association - Nursing Special Interest Group (IMIA-NI) and the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The title of the Standard, "Integration of a reference terminology model for nursing", reflects an intention to move towards a more comprehensive terminology for health care.
This standard was approved by ISO in 2003. Further research is needed to test these reference terminology models. To facilitate the ongoing review of this ISO standard, this website provides a database of pertinent research and evaluation.
