The SNOMED CT Example EMR/EHR Requirements Guide is a practical and useful starting point from which any jurisdiction can begin contemplating including requirements for SNOMED CT into their procurement documents. These examples only provide a high-level outline of each requirement. More detail is likely to be required within a formal procurement document for a specific system. The SNOMED CT Document Library ( provides a range of SNOMED CT guides that may be used to source more detailed requirements. For example, the 'Search and Data Entry Guide' and the 'Data Analytics with SNOMED CT' guide could be used to source more detailed requirements related to searching, entering and querying SNOMED CT codes in health records.
