Abstract

We developed a program to assist in managing changes in source system observation terms. The program returns candidate matches based on approximate string comparator scores. A preliminary evaluation of the tool for managing radiology term updates demonstrates its usefulness by identifying exact matches for 61% of new terms and high probability matches for another 25% of new terms.
