International Diet Dysphagia Standardisation Initiative
In 2022, SNOMED International and the International Diet Dysphagia Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) signed an agreement to incorporate IDDSI Framework v2.0 content into SNOMED CT to enable use in electronic health records globally.
The agreement has been driven by community requests as well as by the need identified by the SNOMED International Nutrition Care Process Terminology (NCPT) Clinical Project Group to include IDDSI Framework v2.0 content in order to facilitate the inclusion of NCPT in SNOMED CT.
Content has been created for each framework level, consistent with the IDDSI standard terminology and definitions subject to SNOMED CT editorial guidance, while additional content is being added to facilitate recording the use of the framework and diet scale together with related findings and interventions. As of January 2023, the content is included in the SNOMED CT International Edition.
