SNOMED CT enabled applications must support the storage of SNOMED CT expressions in ways that represent relevant information within the record system. This section is concerned with the different approaches that may be used to store expressions in ways that enable them to be subsequently retrieved, displayed, processed and communicated.
The term SNOMED CT expressions includes also single Concept Identifier expressions, that identify only one specific concept. Even when postcoordination is not supported in an implementation, each time a single Concept Identifier is being assigned to a clinical record it represents a way of using a SNOMED CT expression.
