Country Report Summaries

  • Canada - Holding a series of webinars for the community - more than 12 different sessions, including Terminology, Introduction to SNOMED CT, LOINC. New community created for health terminology (combined all terminologies). Promotion of International courses. Positive feedback with requests for more education on implementation strategies (closer to the ground), translation, maintenance, considering a real-time (more frequent releases) release cycle - considering what the impact of such would be for the consumers. Considering a package for French-speaking people with introductory material in French.
  • Argentina - Establishing the Argentina NRC. The country is divided into regions, and a group of people is traveling around the country to introduce SNOMED CT to difference stakeholders. Pilot of the Spanish foundation course is in progress.
  • UK - A lot of material shared via the 'Member Education Resources' page on the E-Learning Platform. UK has domain-specific studies to inform the use of SNOMED CT within different clinical domains. Two case studies have recently been published, focusing on secondary care with values/benefits assessment. Monica Jones will give a talk about this at the Expo. The other case study is clinically focused - pediatrics disability service - good results. Results from a “primary care” projects showed that implementers need short fact sheets. Also done a lot of work on FAQ’s … Next project is in Mental health.

  • Uruguay (also see attachment) - Implementing EHR.  First national documents on CDA Level 1. Practical exercises based on the content of the foundation course. On their website they have the tools listed which they use during the workshops. Special interest groups for nursing, pharma and medical records.
  • Sweden - has been a Member since the start of IHTSDO. A larger group of people have taken the E-Learning courses. Still get requests for a translation of the Foundation course, but this is not something that they are considering. Currently there is a procurement of new EHR system in Sweden, which hopefully will be better prepared to use SNOMED CT. There is an increased interest in SNOMED CT and technical requests. Challenges: educate those who will implement - to make communication easier, e.g. when content is requested.
