A 900000000000496009 | Simple map from SNOMED CT reference set| supports the representation of simple maps from SNOMED CT concepts to values in other code systems. No constraints are put on the number of coding schemes supported, the number of codes within a particular scheme mapped to by a single SNOMED CT concept or the number of SNOMED CT concepts mapping to a particular code. However, this type of reference set is usually only appropriate where there is a close "one-to-one" mapping between SNOMED CT concepts and coded values in another code system.
A 900000000000496009 | Simple map from SNOMED CT reference set| is a String reference set used to represent maps from SNOMED CT concepts to codes in another terminology, classification or code system. Its structure is shown in the following table.
|Part of Primary Key|
|NO||YES (Full /Snapshot)|
The inclusive date or time at which this version of the identified reference set member became the current version.
Note: In distribution files the effectiveTime should follow the short ISO date format (YYYYMMDD) and should not include the hours, minutes, seconds or timezone indicator.
In this case, a subtype descendant of: 900000000000496009 | Simple map from SNOMED CT type reference set|
The equivalent code in the other terminology, classification or code system, to which the referencedComponentId is mapped.
