Maintaining the quality of SNOMED CT is of core importance and rigorously undertaken by the organization on an ongoing basis. With this in mind, SNOMED International is initiating a process to undertake a broader examination across all hierarchies. Through the Quality Initiative (QI), we will adopt a greater focus on correcting structural anomalies as well as modification of content, resulting in a higher level of clinical accuracy.

Please review the attached document for additional information regarding SNOMED International's Quality Initiative.
