How will you SNApp?

Using SNOMED for clinical decision support is this year's hackathon theme. Participants will be challenged to design and build a rich and engaging clinical decision support app or to create the knowledge base materials for clinical decision support

Challenge 1 - My List of Medicines App

One of the challenges to participants in our first ever hackathon is to create a SNOMED powered My List of Medicines personal health app or clinical app.

My List of Medicines is the real time record in the cloud of the patient's medications and medical devices, allergies and adverse reactions, and medical and functional problems. Powered by SNOMED, these interlinked elements provide the basis for a vast range of clinical decision support, care coordination and self management apps. Linking medications to diagnoses is a fast and reliable way to get doctors, nurses and patients thinking about why something has been prescribed and crucially whether it is doing any good.

My List of Medicines is the heart of the electronic health record and this year's hackathon is therefore about building an EHR by stealth.

 

 

 

To change the pictures, select the picture to be changed and drag the new one to it. For images in the phone slider they must be 640px wide and 1136px high. Once your picture is swapped out select the picture again and select "original" to reset the pictures size. Note: it will not change the picture size in this view only the public facing view.

 

Challenge 2: SNOMED CT Machine Mapping

Machine Mapping

'Automate' mapping between terminologies using open source tools such as the IHTSDO Mapping Tool or Google's TensorFlow, https://www.tensorflow.org/, which is an open source cognitive computing version of IBM's Watson, and used by Google for their knowledge graph.

Drug Formulary

Also in the medicines space, many countries have a wealth of formulary data in a variety of forms that must be converted to SNOMED in order to realise its potential. Participants are challenged to create a SNOMED mapped knowledge base from the raw material of the New Zealand Formulary.

National drug extension mapping

In the medicines space, countries such as New Zealand with a national drug extension need help mapping their own medicines concepts into the SNOMED International Release. Participants are challenged to complete an automated mapping of the New Zealand Universal List of Medicines to product definitions in the SNOMED International Release.
