Abstract

SNOMED CT is the most comprehensive, multilingual clinical healthcare ­terminology in the world. It is used in electronic health record systems for ­clinical documentation and reporting. It can be used to retrieve, and analyze ­clinical data.

When considering SNOMED CT and its use, we need to remember that on its own SNOMED CT does very little. The value of SNOMED CT can only be realized when it is built into software and systems that are designed around it.
