Abstract

Interoperability between emergency department (ED) information systems requires a shared data specification. In 2013 Health Level Seven International, an international standards body, approved a specification for Data Elements for Emergency Department Systems (DEEDS) for use in the United States. A similar specification was created in Germany for national employment, defining data elements and forms. This study presents the first step in the efforts to harmonize the two data definitions for International approval by comparing the meaning of the German Emergency Department Medical Record (GEDMR) data element definitions with the US DEEDS using a methodology for terminology mapping from ISO/TR 12300. The comparison between GEDMR and DEEDS did show significant differences in certain domains. The results support development of an international standard for ED data elements.
