THE BANFF DECLARATION AND THE INFORMATION NEEDS OF PRIMARY CARE AND FAMILY MEDICINE IN THE U.S.A.  Dec 2003

INTRODUCTION: BACKGROUND of THE BANFF DECLARATION

The HIPAA Legislation requires the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCHVS) to make recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services on standards for Patient Medical Record Information (PMRI). In early 2003, NCHVS invited terminology developers to complete a questionnaire stating why their system should become a national standard. HIPAA standards would profoundly limit primary care and family medicine research if they do not take into account their essential information requirements for research and practice.
