Welsh case study demonstrates SNOMED CT's proven clinical benefits

09 June, 2017

--

Within NHS Wales, an electronic patient record system has been developed since 2009 with a focus on a core generic clinical information model built using SNOMED CT.

Mark Wardle, Consultant Neurologist, at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, and Andy Spencer, Chair of the Informatics for Quality Committee, have recently produced a case study of the implementation of SNOMED CT in an online clinical database in Wales.

The case study outlines how SNOMED CT has proven clinical benefits, including supporting:

  • Direct patient care by making information available immediately to staff at the point of care
  • Clinical governance and service provision by making aggregated data immediately available in live reporting
  • Clinical research with a focus on generic and disease-specific patient outcomes.
