Systems
Terminology
Record formats
We need standards in healthcare because

Lot of communication happens between different elements
Message cannot be ambiguous, else we get medical errors
Encoding of patient data that is usable by multiple parties
Correct representation of clinical information
Representation of medical knowledge
Correct identification of healthcare components
Physicians, nurses, machines, drugs
