Record services

SNOMED CT-enabled Record Services support the functions of a clinical record system, including the display and storage of terminology content in the health records.

Record services are the functions built into a clinical record system, which support the search, data entry, storage and display of content in the health records. Record services use terminology services to help support these functions performed on coded data stored in a health record. Record services support the implementation of SNOMED CT within the information models of clinical applications.
