In addition to transforming the structure of your EHR / AIMS data, performing cross-center research and analysis requires similar nomenclature. For example, one hospital may use a particular drug ID system for propofol, while another hospital may use a different drug ID number. To address this issue, a significant content mapping activity is required prior to transferring data to MPOG. Typically, a clinician is required to perform the detailed work of mapping clinical content from your EHR to the MPOG concepts. A searchable list of concepts is available on the concept browser page.
More importantly, we have developed an easy-to-use graphical user interface application that allows each institution to map their content to MPOG concepts quickly and easily with automated searching and matching where available. The "configuration app" is part of the MPOG suite of applications and is downloadable for free.
