Limitations, Dependencies, and Preconditions for Consideration Applicable Value Set(s) and Starter Set(s)
  • CVX codes are designed to represent administered and historical immunizations and will not contain manufacturer-specific information.

  • When an MVX code is paired with a CVX (vaccine administered) code, the specific trade named vaccine may be indicated providing further specificity as to the vaccines administered.

  • While the information is very helpful, MVX is fairly rare to have for historical vaccinations and is unrealistic to have providers collect.

Comment

Agree with the code system…

Agree with the code system and value set identified. The VSAC direct url for this value set is https://vsac.nlm.nih.gov/valueset/2.16.840.1.113762.1.4.1010.6/expansion. 

I would like to also have the ISA include RxNorm as an additional code system to describe vaccines. That value set is Vaccine Clinical Drug 2.16.840.1.113762.1.4.1010.8 https://vsac.nlm.nih.gov/valueset/2.16.840.1.113762.1.4.1010.8/expansion

This is clearly the right…

This is clearly the right value set for historical data, as that is the value set used.

added value of RxNorm

Given the uptake of CVX/MVX standards, what would the added value of RxNorm be in representing vaccines over CVX/MVX along?
