April 2018 London Meetings

The agenda for our meetings in London has now been posted - 2018-04-09/11 - TUAG Business Meeting, and you'll see that it is a bit different from normal. We would like to spend the first, shorter session on the Monday, giving you a walk through what has changed in the SNOMED International tooling, with a focus on the authoring platform. The second session on Wednesday,12th April will have a focus initially on a hands-on walk through the refset & translation tool for those who are interested in seeing the current functionality or a refresher. We have also built in for a slot for Q&A to ask the SNOMED International team, or other attendees any questions around tooling and the management of SNOMED CT.

However, if you would like to see other/different topics on the agenda, please add suggestions in the comments section of the agenda. Could you also please confirm if you will be attending in person.

Thanks and safe travels for those heading into London.

Apologies for the short notice but due to the fact that we met recently in Bratislava and we do not have any significant updates to provide, we are cancelling todays meeting.

If you have any new items you would like to see on the Agenda for the next meeting please email them through.

As always if you have any urgent issues, queries or questions please contact Rory or myself directly in the meantime.

Bratislava Meetings

The agenda for our meeting Bratislava is available and be found here - 2017-10-17/18 - TUAG Business Meeting. We are meeting in two afternoon sessions, the first on the Tuesday and the second on the Wednesday.

If you are already preparing to travel, I also wanted to draw your attention to the Joint AG meeting which is taking place on the Monday morning after the business meeting has been 'opened. This is a session where all the advisory groups will be in one room to talk over a number of topics that could be of interest. I would recommend going to that session if you are able. The items currently up for discussion at the joint meeting are as follows:

  • Resolving discrepancies between inactivations in external editions vs the International Edition
  • "Negative Delta" file approach
  • Modularisation of SNOMED CT

And for those unable to be there in person and dialling in, conference call details for the joint meeting are -

Safe travels for those travelling and see you next week.

We are happy to announce that the SNOMED CT Content Request Service (CRS) goes live tomorrow, 27th September. This new service replaces the previous SIRS system that was used to allow the community to submit requests for changes to existing content or new content. The new service provides tighter integration with our authoring platform, which will make the request process more efficient all round. It will also provide more flexibility for reporting based on user requirements. Thank you very much for those who have provided feedback during testing. 

Some of you will have previously used SIRS, and you only need to use your current Confluence accounts to access the service, where you will find all of your data migrated from SIRS. In the same way that SIRS operated, the new service is not an open service as yet, and if you do not have yet have access to the service, please get in touch with to enquire about getting an account.

The new service can be found here -

A user guide can be found here - CRS User Guide.

There will be three webinars to provide an introduction to the new service at the following times (hopefully, there should be enough opportunities for attendance, recordings will be made available either way):

  at 20h00 UTC

  at 13h00 UTC

  at 06h00 UTC
