“For terminology standards, the FDA partners with the National Cancer Institute Enterprise Vocabulary Services (EVS). The NCI EVS hosts the FDA terminologies and makes them freely available to the public.”

Mapping capabilities in LexEVS are supported by associations, stored in a coding scheme format like other vocabularies
A map relates a single specific coded concept within a specified code system (source) to a corresponding single specific coded concept (target) within the same or another code system.
Mapping coding scheme does not contain concept details; it relies on participating source and target schemes to provide that information
LexEVS 6.0: Mapping Implementation
If the map relates to code systems available in LexEVS, then the map contains resolvable concepts.
Mapping Implementation (Continued)
Other mappings as defined by users and communities and loaded as mapping schemes
ICD9 to SNOWMEDCT Mapping Scheme
NCIT to ICD9 Mapping Scheme
concept mappings resolvable due to internal links to live terminologies
Relationship links to other NCIT concepts
Relationship links to other ICD9 concepts
Relationship links to other SNOWMED CT concepts
Early Mapping Implementation in Browser the map contains resolvable concepts.
A Value Set represents a uniquely identifiable set of concept codes grouped for a specific purpose.
The Value Set Definition is the mechanism for describing the contents of a Value Set.
The contents are concept codes defined in referencing Code System.
Value Set can contain concept codes from one or more Code Systems.
Value Set Viewer: Design Stage the map contains resolvable concepts.
Search, Browse, Resolve, View, Export
Another Critical Need: Value Set Editor the map contains resolvable concepts.
