SNOMED CT Mapping Tools allow users to create and maintain mappings between SNOMED CT and other code systems to support a wide range of implementation use cases.
Implementations require mappings to/from SNOMED CT for a wide range of reasons, including:
To submit statistical reports using classifications, like ICD-10
To generate codes from procedures vocabularies for billing
To support data interoperability and data integration
To enable advanced data analytics over existing data
To use national medication identifiers in the electronic prescribing process
To allow the user to select terms from a local interface terminology and record this using SNOMED CT
The tools in this section help implementers to create and manage maps to/from SNOMED CT.
