Cancer Synoptic Reporting Working Group

The SNOMED International Cancer Synoptic Reporting Clinical Project Group has been established to review, elaborate, model, deploy and test expanded SNOMED CT content to serve the structured reporting of detailed anatomic pathology (AP) and molecular pathology (MP) data in the diagnosis, staging and treatment of cancer.  The scope of the effort includes all SNOMED International members with interest in standardizing their cancer treatment protocols.

Member Forum Microbiology Working Group

This group has been formed as a subgroup of the Member Forum, with the specific aim to document Member country requirements linked to microbiology in respect of SNOMED CT. The requirements should relate to the concepts (content) within SNOMED CT, and also any other requirements for derivative products, such as maps.

The group will provide a central point for discussion, and support for shared document development in respect of requirements, following clarity gained from joint discussion

Laboratory Data Management and Interoperation Working Group

Support of the information management cycle for the clinical laboratory requires interoperable terminology which will support the semantic requirements of the EHR data model for orderables, performables and resultables central to the clinical laboratory mission of responding to clinical requests for laboratory and pathology patient observation results. 

Surgical Pathology workflow


Project Group

Implemented in laboratory information systems, Snomed CT has the potential to guide the internal workflow in laboratories to allow evidence-based decisions on the way to diagnosis, cross-validate results and allow problem-focused access to knowledge resources and decision support algorithms.

To achieve this, every documentation in laboratory needs to be in Snomed CT. The project has a strong focus on providing the vocabulary needed to implement Snomed CT as the primary source of documentation in a Pathology information system. This includes leveraging pre- and postcoordination for documentation and access decision support resources.
