MeaningfulUse Stage2 and Smoking Status Vocabulary

At the S&I Framework Face to Face meeting last week, Rich Elmore kept pushing for a value set for smoking status. I had tried to craft one from SNOMED CT and failed, because it seemed to me that there were some missing concepts.  Cecil Lynch (a member of the HL7 Vocabulary Workgroup) succeeded where I had failed (he knows SNOMED CT and vocabulary in general so much better than I do).  He came up with this list which I think is an awesome mapping.  We should all be proposing this value set and SNOMED CT for the exchange of Smoking Status information.

Thanks Cecil!
