The successful creation of an international SNOMED
SDO will assure the clinical and technical integrity of the SNOMED
CT global comprehensive clinical terminology.
Decreases clinician time spent converting codes while enhancing use of SNOMED
CT-encoded problems; and
If you like the new Snoflake then stay tuned, as we forecast more SNOMED
Below are two examples showing how SNOMED

CT mappings of these leading nursing classifications will broaden nurses' access to the terminologies necessary to consistently and uniformly document nursing diagnoses, treatment and outcomes within electronic health records (EHRs).
Store problem list data using SNOMED
CT codes in order to prepare for potential Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements; and
Subsets, which reduce the SNOMED

While it is not necessary for a new Terminology Analyst to have experience or a solid understanding of SNOMED
CT it is helpful for them to have some knowledge of nosology principles, and the coding systems that are used in clinical practice in Australia.
