Welcome to your new space!

This is the Mapping SIG Project migrated from Collabnet -

For more information please see the ds documentation and help guide.

Keen to join this SIG?

Most IHTSDO Confluence users do not need accounts. In contrast to IHTSDO's previous collaborative space ("Collabnet," or "TeamForge"), Confluence allows non-registered users to browse topics and delve into project spaces without logging in. You can participate in this IHTSDO Special Interest Group (SIG) without having a Confluence login.

So why would you need an account?  Registered members of the SIG will have the opportunity to participate in the process of nominating and recommending the appointment of future SIG Chairs. If you wish to actively participate in this project - commenting on pages, marking off when you have completed an action, uploading documents for discussion, etc. - then you need an account. If so, please fill out the form on this page.

Confluence account application forms will be reviewed by an administrator to determine whether an account is necessary for the stated purposes.


The focus of this group is to provide an international platform for the sharing of experience and expertise in mapping between SNOMED CT and other clinical terminologies and classifications.


  • Chair:  Hazel Brear (2015-2016)
  • Vice-Chair:  Accepting nominations (2015-2016 then chair 2017-2018)
  • IHTSDO staff liaison:  Ian Green

    • early and late in year [end DST and winter for northern hemisphere] at 20:00 UTC
  • GoToMeeting is used for meeting facilitation.

Future direction of the Mapping SIG

Please review the updated proposals for the future direction of this group. We wish to consult with all members over the next 4 weeks. There will be a discussion of the proposals at the February 8, 2016 meeting followed by voting for your preferred option by February 15, 2016. The proposal is attached to the page of the January 11, 2016 meeting.

Many thanks to all who attended the "SNOMED Supporting Clinicians" session at the 2019 SNOMED international Business meeting. The presentations, and links to various information are now available on a dedicated Confluence page - 2019-04-08 "SNOMED supporting clinicians". Please review the information and use as you require. We would also welcome feedback on the day, and also suggestions for future sessions dedicated to the promoting a clinical perspective of SNOMED CT.…
What is SNOMED CT and why are we using it? What is SNOMED CT? SNOMED CT is a standardised health care vocabulary and we are adopting it within the development of the UKCRC Tissue Directory Every project involving data will have some form of data standard, whether it is formalised to the level of SNOMED CT or whether it is just an informal understanding.…
In 2012, the then Prime Minister David Cameron announced funding for the 100,000 Genomes Project, to be organised by Genomics England (GE), a private company formed by the Department of Health in 2013. Through this project, GE works in partnership with NHS England (itself a non-departmental public body of the Department of Health) to integrate WGS into the NHS. The 100,000 Genomes Project aims to sequence 100,000 genomes from NHS patients with cancer and rare diseases.…
As a result of historic investment and forward-planning for developments in informatics, the Salford Royal Foundation Trust is currently in an enviable position as one of the most digitally mature NHS Trusts in England. The Trust’s EPR system was implemented in 1999 and now holds 1.3 million patient records, with millions of documents, diagnoses and diagnostic results. This wealth of clinical data has proved to be a powerful research resource,…
The Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS) is the new national data set for urgent and emergency care. ECDS is implemented in consultant-led 24hr (Type 1) Emergency Departments and specialist (Type 2) Emergency Departments from October 2017. ECDS is being implemented in Minor Injury Units/ Urgent Care Centres and Walk-in Centres (Types 3 & 4 respectively) Emergency Departments by October 2018. The ECDS covers "Reason for Attendance", "Chief complaint", " Acuity" and "Diagnosis".…
The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in the UK have produced a Good Practice Guide to inform hospital doctors about current developments in medical record keeping standards for the Electronic Patient Record (EPR). It describes why standards are needed for the structure and content of medical records and how their introduction will affect our work. The document is structures as follows – A guide for clinicians – Why have standards for the structure and content of medical records?…
Dear all, As from today the mailing lists for all CRG's will n o longer notify you of changes on the site. The approach is in line with the latest privacy legislation. You will need to look at the individual sites to obtain information on updates and postings. SNOMED International will issue a communication to any current mailing lists requesting explicit consent to contact you for the purposes of promoting SNOMED International, the SNOMED Community,…
Our thanks to everyone who attended the clinical session at the SNOMED International business meeting in London on April 9. This is the first such general clinical session we have organised and the focus was on the clinical engagement strategy and the work to establish Clinical Reference Groups, including the use of confluence. We received some really helpful feedback and further direction, which was very helpful. We attach here the slides of the session and welcome further input/feedback.…
April Business Meeting

Dear all, Please be aware that due to technical reasons we have had to move the individual group pages within Confluence. Due to this, if you have previously bookmarked the pages the bookmarks will no longer function. The links to the individual groups are available from Directory - Clinical Reference Groups, please update your bookmarks as required. Kind regards, Ian Green
Special Interest Groups (SIG's) have been a core component of the work of the IHTSDO/SNOMED international from the beginning, and in some cases predate the organisation itself. As we move to a new approach, using Clinical Reference Groups (CRG's), it seems a good time to look back at all that has been achieved over the years. Over the years, SIG's have been used to both inform developments by providing expertise, and in some cases to also deliver specific items.…
Dear all, As you will be aware from our discussions within each Special Interest Group (SIG), we are moving away from a model of using SIG’s to a virtual based approach. Each existing clinical SIG, including the Mapping SIG, has its own new dedicated Confluence site. The links to these sites can be found at the following - Introduction - Clinical Reference Groups We have created a number of Confluence pages to support these changes starting from Clinical Engagement,…
