Documents obtaining and loading terminologies.
Native terminology files are maintained and distributed by individual source providers. Each terminology has its own pages, policies, and procedures for this and also has its own update cycles. Information on the four terminologies used so far with this tool are provided here.
- SNOMED CT - Obtained from your NRC (varies)
- ICD10 - Obtained from WHO - http://www.who.int/classifications/icd/en/
- ICD9CM - 2011 edition - ftp://ftp.cdc.gov/pub/Health_Statistics/NCHS/Publications/ICD9-CM/2011/
- ICPC - http://www.who.int/classifications/icd/adaptations/icpc2/en/
For details on handling other terminologies, see Custom Terminologies.
Once terminologies are in a supported format, the appropriate admin tool loader can be used, see Terminology Loader and Remover.
