Currently, the status is request and revision for local Spanish extension of adherence concepts for later proposal to ITHSDO.


Clinical decision support


Adherence is critical to ensure that therapeutic benefits are delivered to patients.


The objective of this proposal is the development of an ontology of domain of terminology of adherence standard-based, of all the concepts related to adherence to pharmacological treatments, in the context of the integrated healthcare plans.

How SNOMED CT will be used

The aims are that all the adherence concepts managed are represented in Snomed CT if they are specific to the biomedical and health field. Snomed CT will be extended to adherence data sets so that the information related to the adherence can be processed and semantically connected with the relevant information on what the clinical decisions of the plans are implemented, based on clinical guidelines and other biomedical knowledge sources.

Why SNOMED CT will be used

Snomed CT is the recognized universal terminology and incorporates in its scope the appropriate clinical, behavioral, social, and pharmacological concepts to respond to the semantic interoperability needs of this domain.
