Transcript of snomed ct
•Through sharing data it can reduce the need to repeat health history at each new encounter with a healthcare professional
•Information can be recorded by different people in different locations and combined into simple information views within the patient record
•Use of a common terminology decreases the potential for differing interpretation of information Applications for SNOWMED CT •Electronic Health Record Systems
•Computerized Provider Order Entry CPOE such as E-Prescribing or Laboratory Order Entry
•Catalogues of clinical services; e.g., for Diagnostic Imaging procedures
•Knowledge databases used in clinical decision support systems (CDSS)
•Remote Intensive Care Unit Monitoring
•Emergency Room Charting
•Genetic Databases A systematically organized computer processable collection of medical terms providing codes, terms, synonyms and definitions covering diseases, findings, procedures, microorganisms, substances, etc. It allows a consistent way to index, store, retrieve, and aggregate clinical data across specialties and sites of care. Who uses it? Clinicians
The end users of EHRs
System developers & vendors / suppliers
Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, etc
Policy makers (government, professions, etc)
Researchers More Uses... •Electronic recording in a common way reduces errors and can help to ensure completeness in recording all relevant data
•Standardized information makes analysis easier, supporting quality, cost effective practice, research and future clinical guideline development
•A clinical terminology allows a health care provider to identify patients based on specified coded information, and more effectively manage screening, treatment and follow up References Hebda, T., & Czar, P.
