Description

Location: Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Scope

Allergies structured entry and CDSS available as a module of our in-house EHR and as a service for interested health care organizations.

How SNOMED CT will be used

We developed an interface terminology modeled after SNOMED CT and linked to SNOMED CT concepts. In this case, allergy-related concepts and drug-related concepts (VTMs, VMPs) are linked to their corresponding SNOMED CT codes.

Why SNOMED CT was selected

SNOMED CT is the most comprehensive clinical terminology, provides a semantic network with formal structured meanings, has an extendable model, it is widely adopted as an international standard, and it was designed with EHR implementations in mind.
