SNOMED CT-enabled solutions

Snow Owl® is our flagship product, a collaborative terminology authoring platform used in over 83 countries to view and maintain healthcare terminologies, create value sets and mappings, and run semantic queries on healthcare data.

Snow Owl is primarily designed to support maintenance and publication workflows for countries that create national extensions to SNOMED CT. In addition to SNOMED CT, we offer strong support for related terminologies — particularly LOINC, ICD-10, and ATC — as well as local code systems.

Snow Owl is integrated with a Drug Dictionary module that enables pharmacists to record medication data using simple forms and transform it into SNOMED CT’s ontological representation. This allows executing semantic queries on the data and also creating sets of drug product concepts that match a particular use case (e.g. prescribing, dispensing, or administration).

Rather than relying on proprietary standards, Snow Owl is driven by an ISO standard model repository. This provides a full revision history and audit log of all changes and enables transactional multi-user collaboration. Snow Owl acts as the backbone terminology repository for the IHTSDO’s international release of SNOMED CT.
