SNOMED CT will be made available throughout Estonia for use in electronic health records, health research, and other applications. Users of the terminology in Estonia will also have access to new resources as they are developed. The National Release Center in Estonia is the Estonian eHealth Foundation, who promotes and develops national e-solutions within the healthcare system.
Being a Member of SNOMED International enables Estonia to create uniformity in clinical terminology throughout the healthcare sector and in IT for safe, accurate, and effective exchange of clinical and related health information. SNOMED CT and its application are of significant interest within the field of pathology. According to the Estonian Society of Pathologists, implementing SNOMED CT throughout Estonia would be of substantial benefit to the field.
