We believe that the ASA will continue to take a lead in establishing the role of AIMS in this national database by setting standards for data capture, semantics, and ontology of care events; in fact, the ASA has charged at least two of its committees to begin formulating the standards required to establish a national database for anesthesia. Chapters 6 and 7 of this book discuss data standards for interfacing to other systems and monitors. Chapter 6 specifically discusses the efforts of the Data Dictionary Task Force, which was initially sponsored by the APSF as a subsidiary organization of the ASA and has evolved into the International Organization for Terminology in Anesthesia.
