Designated a Doody's Core Title! The Preeminent Nursing Terminology Classification System "The Clinical Care Classification (CCC) System described in this manual is the only standard coded nursing terminology that is based on sound research using the nursing process model framework and that meets the Patient Medical Record Information (PMRI) comparability requirement. The CCC System allows patient care data generated by nurses to be incorporated into the PMRI database, and enables nurses' contributions to patient outcomes to be studied and acknowledged." -- From the Foreword by Sheryl L. Taylor, BSN, RN, Senior Consultant, Farrell Associates TESTIMONIES: "ABC Coding Solutions-Alternative Link developed ABC codes for nursing in collaboration with Dr. Virginia Saba, developer of the CCC system. Approximately two hundred ABC codes were developed from the CCC System of Nursing Interventions to accurately document nursing and integrative health care processes, classify and track clinical care, and develop evidence-based practice models, thus filling significant gaps in older medical code sets." --Connie Koshewa, Practitioner Relations Director, ABC Coding Solutions-Alternative Link "The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNPÆ) is a program of the International Council of Nurses (ICN). One of the first steps in the development of the ICNPÆ was to collect and compare all the nursing concepts in existing nursing terminologies, including the CCC. To facilitate the goal of ICNPÆ as a unified nursing language system, a project is under way to map the CCC to the ICNPÆ Version 1.0. This work will facilitate evaluation and ongoing development of both terminologies and allow ICN to compare data using CCC codes with data from other standard nursing terminologies." --Amy Coenen, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director, ICNPÆ Program, International Council of Nurses
