SNOMED in healthcare is considered as a systematic, comprehensive, multilingual, and standardized medical vocabulary term that relates to the care of patients (IHTSDO, 2014). This language enables a consistent approach to present clinical content according to international standards. As such, SNOMED has various advantages. Firstly, it enables consistent sharing of information across health care settings. Secondly, it can be used to benefit individuals or groups in the sense that it can highlight current health problems or changes in clinical practices (IHTSDO, 2014). Thirdly, interpretation risks may be reduced since it enhances the availability of significant information and evidence-based clinical practices.
The HL7 integration language provides a platform for electronic information integration, retrieval, and sharing in clinical settings (HL 7, n.d). This language is considered to operate in the 7th layer of the OSI known as the application layer. The standards clearly define how languages are set, communication, data types, and information packaging among others. HL7 system language evaluates health services through management based on international health standards (HL 7, n.d). Some benefits of the HL 7 standards include common standards for information exchange and electronic management of records. For example, the messaging standard enables health care practitioners and providers to exchange health data needed for quality provision of care.
NANDA comprises professional nursing practitioners whose main function is the management of nursing diagnoses. Notably, nursing diagnoses involve professional judgment based on clinical knowledge. They determine experiences and possible health issues affecting individuals. NANDA provides clinical interventions aimed at improving patients’ health. The list is a significant tool in the promotion of patient safety through evidence-based practices (Nanda Nursing Diagnosis List, n.d). In addition, it enables the prediction of outcomes based on the implementation of clinical interventions. For example, colic constipation is defined as an emission of dry and hard stools as a result of slow food residue passage. Generally, these system languages aim at improving the quality of health care through systematic and evidence-based approaches.
