In addition to the twice annual release of the SNOMED CT International edition, SNOMED International produces and releases a number of SNOMED CT derivative products which are released on a 6 monthly cycle, and in line with the SNOMED CT International Edition release.
Recent work to evaluate the use of these products among our different stakeholder groups has indicated that current usage of the range of derivative products is comparatively low due to stakeholder challenges with consuming a twice annual release. This, coupled with our efforts to better utilize the organization’s content and release resources, has led SNOMED International to the decision to move to an annual release cycle for these products, following an established schedule in line with the January or July International Edition release.
