Recommendation:

Where it is useful to code more specific information about testing method to a more granular level than what is contained in the test name, such details should be coded with SNOMED CT.

Examples

Example 1: Value set for anti-microbial Susceptibility test methods for invasive Pneumococcal disease (PHIN-VADS CDC)

In Bio-surveillance, specific test methods can be populated with SNOMED (Anti-microbial susceptibility test methods or Varicella lab test method) in HL7 (specimen collection method) or CDC Code system for laboratory test method identifier.
