SNOMED International is establishing a Drug Extensions User Support Group, to provide support to implementers of SNOMED CT drug extensions. The group is open to any stakeholder from the SNOMED CT community who is actively using, planning to use, or interested in using the SNOMED CT drug extension model. This includes anyone who is:

  • Creating a national SNOMED CT drug extension to support clinical systems;
  • Mapping an existing national drug model to SNOMED International's drug model to support interoperability and cross-border data sharing;
  • Integrating a SNOMED CT drug extension with other drug standards, such as ISO's Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP) standard;
  • Utilising the SNOMED CT drug model to implement clinical decision support (CDS); or
  • Developing clinical implementations that use a drug dictionary based on the SNOEMD CT drug extension model.

Objective - To provide a forum through which implementers can share their real world experiences, challenges and questions, with other stakeholders and SNOMED International

Goals
      1. To enable the successful implementation of national SNOMED CT drug extensions, that meet the requirements of both national use and cross-border data sharing
      2. To enable the successful interoperability between national SNOMED CT drug extensions and other medicinal product standards required for national or cross-border data sharing

Meetings - The first meeting will be held on Thursday 29th October 2020 at 11:00 UTC

Dear all

On-going status of the project can be tracked using following links in the correct sequence as advised below. The first link will show you the JIRA tickets, which are either completed or in progress. Each ticket documents progress of a a sub-hierarchy or part of it, by using the second link you can track the Clinical findings, the JIRA tickets refer to. For example Qi-20 about 125666000 |Burn| is completed, by searching for "125666000" in the daily build on the second link, you will find what had been done to "Burn"
