7Review of current relevant HL7 tracker items20

There are a number of trackers that may be relevant, either as specific items to discuss and provide feedback on, or just as context for understanding how/where there are existing binding linkages between FHIR elements and SNOMED CT:

AdverseEvent.event - binding to SNOMED CT Clinical Findings (Example) - inappropriate

AllergyIntoleranceType should be SNOMED - 2016-09 core #508

Review the IHTSDO recommendations for using SNOMED CT in Observation

SNOMED CT provides representation of required value set - 2016-09 daf #6

Michael Lawley says: There are more.  I found these simply by searching for "snomed" : GForge search for SNOMED
