A terminological resource consists of codes representing meanings expressed as terms, with interrelationships between the codes to provide enhanced representation of the meanings. SNOMED CT includes a logic-based reference terminology foundation and extensions that support effective implementations. Content development by expert clinicians is intended to ensure comprehensive coverage of terms that are appropriate and expressive. The resource is distributed in sets of electronic files. Supporting software tools are not necessarily provided directly by IHTSDO.
