SNOMED International - Leading healthcare terminology, worldwide


Israel, which joined as a Member in April 2012 following a strategic decision by the Israeli Ministry of Health to adopt SNOMED CT as the Israeli health system’s clinical terminology, is in the initial phases of implementing the change. The NRC is currently circulating the international version without any national changes using Collabnet as the platform to deliver the SNOMED CT files.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) bears national responsibility for ensuring the health of the population of Israel. The ministry determines the policy on matters of health and medical services, and is in charge of planning, supervision and control, licensing and coordination of the health system’s services.
