American Medical Association
The American Medical Association (AMA) and SNOMED International have a collaborative agreement to coordinate on the design and development of their respective coding and terminology products.
The AMA has also recently announced their Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI) which complements the approach that SNOMED International embodies regarding continuous learning and collaboration. Given both parties are committed to the unambiguous exchange of clinical information across the health system, SNOMED International is committed to the IHMI collaborative community and its pursuit of safe, effective and patient-driven health care.
The AMA and SNOMED International recognize the complementary nature of their various code sets and initiatives and the critical role they play in healthcare delivery and administration. By working in tandem, the collaboration will allow the continued improvement of content to better support existing and emerging uses of health data globally.
