Welcome to the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Clinical Reference Group space
The SNOMED International Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Clinical Reference Group is a community of practice for the laboratory and pathology clinicians focused on pathology, laboratory medicine and associated activities.
The role of all Clinical Reference Groups is to provide a forum to discuss issues, and influence the development and improvement of content in SNOMED CT.
The Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Clinical Reference Group has been established to ensure that the requirements of the international pathology and laboratory medicine community are incorporated into the content of SNOMED CT International Release, and also to support the development of derivative products that support implementations focused on the this clinical area.
