The DSS Medical Abbreviation Symbol or ADA is a short term abbreviation for Diagnostic and Statistical Service. It can be used for reference to computers and the diagnostic process. However, it is not used as an acronym for DSS or diagnosis and certain other acronyms.
In addition, there are three DSS abbreviation symbols which are used to classify the DSS Medical Abbreviation Symbol. These are the ADA (American College of Radiology), ADA (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) and DSS (Department of Health and Human Services).
Most of the computer diagnostics, such as CT, MRI, X-Ray, ultrasound, etc., are now performed using DSS Diagnostic System, DSM (Digital Suite for Business) and other software. The computer diagnostics process that is performed today is made possible by DSS Diagnostic System.
Since DSS is a very complex program, it cannot be written with regular text-processing software and must be converted into and from digital binary, which has been designed to make the code easier to understand. Thus, for this reason, DSS codes are automatically converted into medical abbreviations in order to shorten and make better use of them. However, they are also abbreviated to make it easier for the patient to know what a particular computer program does.
While the DSS abbreviation code can be shortened by only an additional letter or two, some of the other abbreviations used to refer to DSS programs are DSS (digital standard), DSM (digital Suite for Business), ADA (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists), DSS (Diagnostic and Statistical Service) and DSS (Digital Standard System). Most of these acronyms can be found in the product catalogs for these products.
Because DSS is a complex program, many different parts of the program are being called out as DSS, but are actually only part of one program. For example, there are two programs running simultaneously - the Diagnostic Center and the Statistics Center. Each program is running independently of the other. Each DSS consists of four main parts, as shown below.
Although the numbers show each section of the DSS in numerical order, there are actually more parts of the DSS program than those shown above. There are multiple programs run simultaneously, such as "Database Search for Unknown Diagnosis"Coupled Sequence Search for Induced Progression of Degenerative Myelopathy". All of these parts work together to diagnose patients and prescribe medicines for their medical needs.
Each part has its own name that is identified by its part number. For example, there are the "To-Do List" and the "Secondary Diagnostic Sequence".
When a part of the DSS is taken out, another part replaces it, and this is also done when multiple parts are replaced at the same time. For example, the Statistic Center is replaced by the "Health Information Management Services (HIMS)" at the same time. The new parts in the DSS are "Health Information Management System (HIMS)", "Radiologic Service Reference System (RRS)", "DNS Provider Information"Primary Care Manager".
Because all of the acronyms for DSS were designed to identify different programs within the DSS, each program has its own name and abbreviation. The primary source for DSS abbreviation names is the DSS manual, which is published annually.
The DSS abbreviations are named after different parts of the program, the earlier versions of which were named for the part number in a different order. While DSS may not be able to diagnose specific diseases using DSS, it is an invaluable tool for doctors, radiologists, medical technologists and other medical specialists.
