The Danish Health Data Authority represents Denmark to SNOMED International. The Danish Health Data Authority is an agency under the Ministry of Health. As a national public authority, we collaborate with all relevant parties in Denmark’s health care sector and manage the processes that lead to the establishment of uniform rules and frameworks for eHealth in Denmark. This ensures that all parts of the healthcare system can share data securely and efficiently, with the aim of providing patients the best possible treatment.
The Danish Health Data Authority is responsible for the existence of relevant common frameworks and standards within eHealth. We generate reference architectures and lay down standards for communication between sectors. Furthermore, we lay the foundation for nationwide infrastructure and operate and develop national health-related IT systems. In addition, we implement specific intersectoral initiatives and collaborate internationally.
The National Release Centre (NRC) in Denmark is responsible for supporting users as well as distributing and managing SNOMED CT® in Denmark.
