Today we published a blog post written by SNOMED International CIO Rory Davidson in which he explains what the SNOMED CT concept lookup tool is and who it was developed for.
Rory explains the advantages it offers non SNOMED CT users, and highlights the tool’s capabilities, such as being able to look across all extensions and editions, not just the SNOMED CT International Edition.
In the blog, he touches on the drivers for developing the tool, such as the challenges many European Union countries face in cross-border data-sharing with countries that are not yet SNOMED International Members.
He also discusses the technology behind the tool and explains how it is similar to, yet different from, Google search. Check out the post here.
