March 31 2017

SNOMED International is pleased to announce the release of the Decision Support with SNOMED CT guide.

Clinical Decision Support (CDS) systems support healthcare providers to make well informed decisions at relevant points in the patient journey, such as diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

SNOMED CT enables these CDS systems to select the most relevant clinical guidelines, knowledge and alerts for an individual patient, by leveraging its comprehensive clinical hierarchies and defining relationships.

The Decision Support with SNOMED CT guide introduces the key components of CDS systems, and explores ways in which SNOMED CT can be used to enhance the capabilities within each of these components. This guide has been written to assist Members, vendors and users of SNOMED CT develop a greater understanding of how SNOMED CT can be used to enhance CDS implementations.
