Mapping tools

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.
