SNOMED CT Supporting Clinicians – Tuesday 9th April (9:00-17:00)
Clinical input into the development of SNOMED CT ensures that the terminology meets current and future clinical requirements. These activities form part of the broader approach of Clinical Engagement. This session aims to showcase the work currently underway within SNOMED International and the broader clinical SNOMED CT community. The aim is to share current practice and work in progress to support future developments that will provide SNOMED CT with the clinical input it requires supporting the global clinical community of practice.
SNOMED CT Supporting Genomics – Thursday 11th April (9:00-17:00)
Genomics is developing globally at a very fast rate, and globally there are developments to support the delivery Genomics into mainstream clinical care. SNOMED CT is in a position to enable these developments by the provision of enhanced content coverage in the EHR to support both the recording of phenotypic data (essential for Genomics research) and the utility to support interoperability between the clinical EHR and Genomics researchers. This session aims to bring together implementation examples of how SNOMED CT is currently being used to support Genomics and the development of Precision Medicine. Specifically, there will also be a focus on SNOMED CT’s ability to support data analytics both in the Genomics arena and more generally across clinical practice.

We look forward to seeing you in London!
