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