SNOMED CT is a terminology that can cross-map to other international terminologies, classifications and code systems. Maps are associations between particular concepts or terms in one system and concepts or terms in another system that have the same (or similar) meaning.
SNOMED International creates maps from SNOMED CT to other code systems, classifications or terminologies to support our Members and other stakeholders that use these products alongside SNOMED CT.
The Global Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN) is a list of generic names used to identify all medical device products. Such products include those used in the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of disease or injury in humans.
The main purpose of the GMDN is to provide health authorities and regulators, health care providers, manufacturers and others with a naming system that can be used to exchange medical device information and support patient safety.
The SNOMED CT to ICD-10 map is released on January 31 and July 31 as a derivative of the SNOMED CT International Release.
