Migration does not mean over-writing legacy coded data with SNOMED CT expression . This is strongly discouraged and users are advised to ensure that data stored at the time of data entry is preserved. This is essential for two main reasons:

  • Medico-legal status of an altered clinical record may become degraded;
  • The original record may be an invaluable resource, should


    produce unexpected results.
