What is the Global Patient Set?
The Global Patient Set (GPS) will be a managed collection comprised of existing SNOMED CT reference sets and available to users at no cost. The Set will be comprised of unique identifiers, fully specified names (FSN), preferred terms in international English, and status flags.
It is important to note that the GPS excludes SNOMED CT’s inherent relationships and hierarchies; fundamental to the nature of an ontology and its ability to enable clinical data analytics, decision support, artificial intelligence, etc. Further, within the Global Patient Set, concept synonyms and definitions are not provided.
