Eight SNOMED International member countries have expressed a national interest/requirement for SNOMED CT content in pathology.
The UK National Release Centre through the Information Representation Service (IReS) of NHS Digital, are expressing an urgent requirement for an approach that provides SNOMED CT content for blood sciences observables (haematology, biochemistry plus immunology). Other possible domains for collaboration where the UK has established requirements in are transfusion, microbiology and virology.
We would like to invite the parties who have already confirmed their interest in identifying an approach for SNOMED CT content in the above areas to share their priority work areas / aims for pathology and SNOMED CT.
There will also be an opportunity to discuss this at a workshop hosted by SNOMED International at the Business meeting in Bratislava.
Please note that this is a separate discussion to the cancer synoptic project work stream where the UK is already represented.
