October 2020 Business Meeting

Due to the ongoing the COVID-19 situation, it was apparent that travel restrictions would remain in place for many of our SNOMED CT community in October. After much analysis and discussion, SNOMED International governance and organizational leadership decided that the October Business Meetings and SNOMED CT Expo 2020, taking place October 4-9, would be run solely as a virtual event.  Portugal will now serve as the October Business Meeting and SNOMED CT Expo host in 2021, with subsequent awarded hosts to follow accordingly.

Provisions were made to allow October 2020 Business Meetings for our Advisory and Working Groups to convene online where appropriate in the first week of October. This included a coordinated program of sessions focused on our Clinical Reference Groups and how SNOMED CT supports clinicians.

This included a coordinated program focused on our Clinical Reference Groups and how SNOMED CT supports clinicians, held from 13:00-17:30 UTC on Wednesday 7th October.
