SNOMED International - Leading healthcare terminology, worldwide

Position Statement: SNOMED CT to International Classification of Diseases for Mortality and Morbidity Statistics (ICD-11- MMS) Map

SNOMED CT® is a global clinical terminology, created for use in health records for recording relevant clinical information to support patient care, sharing and analysis of information. SNOMED CT® is a terminology that can be cross-mapped to other international terminologies, classifications and code systems where there is a requirement.

A key organizational requirement is to link SNOMED CT® to the World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD) to support various reporting needs of SNOMED International Members, Affiliates and WHO Member States. SNOMED International provides this position statement describing the proposed SNOMED CT to the International Classification of Diseases Eleventh Revision for Mortality and Morbidity Statistics (ICD-11-MMS) Map and includes an overview for its development.

The goal of the project is to produce an understandable, reproducible and useful SNOMED CT to ICD-11- MMS map.

This Position Statement is for policy makers or equivalent agencies, SNOMED International stakeholder groups, Standards Development Organizations (SDOs), SNOMED CT® implementers, classification users, and software vendors.
