SNOMED CT (SNOMED Clinical Terminology) provides a common language that assists with the electronic exchange of clinical health information. It enables a consistent way of indexing, storing, retrieving, and aggregating clinical data across specialties and sites of care. SNOMED CT Can be mapped to other coding systems, such as ICD-10, which helps facilitate semantic interoperability.
A Snapshot release contains the most recent version of every component released up to the time of the snapshot. The version of each component contained in a snapshot is the most recent version of that component at the release time. The ‘Snapshot’ release is useful for a simple installation but does not provide a history or retrospective view of the terminology. There are valid use cases for each Release Type. Each International release will incorporate all three of these Release Types, allowing users to choose the most appropriate format.
In addition to 623 new concepts specific for the US, the September 2018 SNOMED CT US Edition also contains all of the content from the July 2018 SNOMED CT International Edition. Approximately 543 requests for terminology additions and updates were submitted via the US Content Request System (US CRS) to support US clinical health information data exchange. This latest version of the US Edition also includes the SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CM reference set, with over 123,000 SNOMED CT source concepts mapped to ICD-10-CM targets.
