New Program Release Feature in NLM’s Value Set Authority Center (VSAC)

Posted by on December 5th, 2017 Posted in: Announcements, Communications Tools, Data, Electronic Health Records, NLM Resources, Search Tools


The National Library of Medicine Value Set Authority Center (VSAC) has announced a new user interface that displays program releases of value sets on the VSAC homepage. Additionally, the page has a sleek new look and intuitive filters for program-related value sets. All functionality and underlying data remain the same. The new user interface displays current program releases, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) Value Sets and Health Level Seven International Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (HL7 C-CDA) Value Sets, and introduces the newest program release of value sets, CMS Hybrid Value Sets. Core Clinical Data Elements and Hybrid Measures use a set of core clinical data elements, clinical variables from electronic health records (EHRs), that are routinely collected and can be extracted for use in risk-adjusted hospital-level hybrid outcome measures.

Learn more about creating a program release of your value sets in VSAC, display your published value sets in a program release on the front page of VSAC, and enable easy search and download for your value set consumers! Send any questions and feedback to NLM Customer Support.
