Showcases how SigmaMD leverages SNOMED CT to enhance its problem list, including conditions and allergies, as well as procedures.
The case study focuses on the utilization of SNOMED CT within SigmaMD for problem list management, search functionality, and cross-walking to other terminologies like CPT and ICD-10. It highlights the benefits and effectiveness of SNOMED CT in improving clinical documentation and enabling accurate representation of patient conditions and procedures.
How SNOMED CT will be used
SNOMED CT is integrated into SigmaMD's problem list module, allowing clinicians to select and record accurate diagnoses, allergies, and procedures using standardized clinical concepts. Additionally, SNOMED CT server APIs enable efficient search functionality, ensuring clinicians can quickly access relevant clinical information and make informed decisions.
Why SNOMED CT will be used
SNOMED CT was selected for its comprehensive clinical terminology and interoperability capabilities. The rich clinical content and well-defined relationships in SNOMED CT support accurate and precise representation of patient conditions and procedures. Furthermore, the convenience of cross-walking to other terminologies, such as CPT and ICD-10, enhances coding accuracy and facilitates data exchange across healthcare systems. The highly responsive SNOMED CT server and its ability to provide detailed search results further contributed to its selection in SigmaMD.
