Some SNOMED CT
hierarchies have been shown to exhibit large root areas, making them suitable for this kind of QA methodology.
and data mining of the relationships between certain assessments, processes/interventions, and outcomes can form an evidence-based decision support algorithm.
About SNOMED CT
The implementation of SNOMED CT
in NSW is virtually in its infancy and there are likely to be lessons learned for other Australian and international jurisdictions.
Kripps has previously worked for Thomson Micromedex and has extensive knowledge of mapping drug data to SNOMED CT
as well as LOINC.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce a new Clinical Observations Recordings and Encoding (CORE) Problem List Subset of SNOMED CT
is now available for download by UMLS Licensees.

The SNOMED CT
dataset contains over 300,000 unique concepts, all of which can be found using Snomobile in a matter of seconds.
Donna Truran, Patricia Saad, Ming Zhang and Kerry Innes argue that SNOMED CT
will play a vital role in the solutions to these dilemmas by providing a standardised method of inputting data into our health systems via the Electronic Health Record (EHR) (Truran et al.
Several years ago, CAP began to offer a SNOMED CT
(Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine--Clinical Terms)-encoded checklist version in a database format to software developers.
