1. SNOMED Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT) is the most comprehensive, multilingual clinical healthcare terminology in the world. SNOMED CT contributes to the improvement of patient care by underpinning the development of electronic health records (EHRs), which record clinical information in ways that enable meaning-based retrieval. This provides effective access to information required for decision support and consistent reporting and analysis. Patients benefit from the use of SNOMED CT because it improves the recording of EHR information and facilitates better communication, leading to improvements in the quality of care.SNOMED CT is owned, maintained and distributed by the International Health Terminology Standard Development Organization (IHTSDO) (http://www.ihtsdo.org/snomed-ct/snomed-ct-lookup-service), which is a not-for-profit association which is owned and governed by its national members. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), SNOMED CT is an extensive clinical terminology that was formed by the merger, expansion, and restructuring of SNOMED RT® (Reference Terminology) and the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) Clinical Terms (also known as the Read Codes). It is the most comprehensive clinical vocabulary available in English (or any language). SNOMED CT is concept-oriented and has an advanced structure that meets most accepted criteria for a well-formed, machine-readable terminology. It has been designated as a US standard for electronic health information exchange in Interoperability Specifications produced by the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel and has also been adopted for use by the US Federal Government, through the Consolidated Health Informatics (CHI) Initiative, for several clinical domains.View the quick Jing tutorial on navigating the SNOMED CT online encoder. http://screencast.com/t/VIZRLbZhqSrThe National Cancer Institute provides free access to online coding with SNOMED CT.
