Laying the groundwork for semi-automated coding: Mapping SNOMED CT

Speakers: Alana Lane, CHIM, CTSS, Betsy Nejat, BA(Hons), CAE

CIHI have developed maps from SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CA and ICD-9 to support use in the electronic health/medical record systems to facilitate re-use of point of care data captured by physicians.

Sponsored by:

CIHI

As health care organizations in Canada adopt clinical terminologies within their EHR’s there is an increased need for maps to enable efficiencies through semi-automation of classification codes. CIHI have developed maps from SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CA, for use within electronic health record to facilitate the re-use of point of care data captured by clinicians in acute care settings, and from SNOMED CT to ICD-9 for use in electronic medical records to provide a standardized approach for collecting health concern information in primary care and support patient level physician billing data collection in Canada.
