SNOMED International is pleased to announce that Dr. James Case, Head of Terminology, will transition to a half time position with the organization following his recent retirement from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). Effective Monday January 14, 2019, Jim will continue to provide strategic direction and editorial leadership in all areas related to SNOMED CT core content.
Jim’s continued tenure with SNOMED International lends continuity to the SNOMED CT Community of Practice, specifically where content expertise and SNOMED CT editorial guidance is concerned.
Jim joined the NLM in January 2010, where his primary role was development and maintenance of the US extension to SNOMED CT and addition of US content into the International release of SNOMED CT. It has been the United States’ ongoing commitment to IHTSDO that originally enabled Jim to provide his terminological expertise and guidance to the organization on a part-time secondment basis in June 2015. From this time, Jim has consistently provided leadership across SNOMED CT content development and mapping areas.
Moving forward, Jim will continue to work closely with all areas of the business to evolve the content of SNOMED CT to best meet the needs of the International community and terminology implementers.
Please join me in warmly acknowledging Jim’s new tenure with the organization. Please contact myself or Jim with any questions or clarifications.
CEO, SNOMED International
