lightning3

In this series of posts I am evaluating SNOMED CT® using the international browser.

SNOMED CT® includes codings for physical forces. These allow for the coding of forces associated with trauma and also documentation about the weather as examples of clinical utility. When combined with other codings this allows for a rich description of the context of clinical events.

Appendix B – Definition of Health Information Exchange

This is the definition of the Health Information Exchange that I use (Hersh et al, 2015)

Health information exchange (HIE), the electronic sharing of clinical information across the boundaries of health care organizations
