Extending the use of SNOMED concepts in Electronic Health Records

The use of classifications, standards and terminology proves to be of particular importance to classify therapist techniques, clinical and nursing procedures and formulate diagnoses. In this work, the De- partment of pathological anatomy was chosen as a pilot service to enter the SNOMED system to produce reports and to evaluate the benefits of its use in a real context. The successful implementation is directly re- lated to the success of interoperability between information and the use of electronic health record systems. It is the first step to extend the sys- tem to the whole hospital andnthe success of clinical research, to provide alerts and prevention systems and reduce medical error.
