SNOMED International advises that the 2017 Call for Papers has now closed.
It was asked that proposals for the SNOMED CT Expo 2017 programme should focus on the following topics
• SNOMED in Action
The ‘SNOMED in Action’ conference stream focuses on sharing practical, first-hand experiences using SNOMED CT in clinical solutions. Implementers from healthcare organisations, government agencies and the commercial sector will share their rationale for using SNOMED CT, the approaches taken, challenges faced and the resulting benefits they were able to achieve.
• Enhancing Clinical Practice using SNOMED CT
The ‘Enhancing Clinical Practice’ conference stream focuses on clinical achievements that have been made possible with SNOMED CT. Improvements in quality measures and outcomes, strengthened patient safety and population health initiatives speak to the array of outcome, efficiency and cost reduction-based benefits possible for healthcare professionals and their patients.
• Leveraging SNOMED CT
‘Leveraging SNOMED CT’ focuses on the development and enhancement of the SNOMED CT product. Presenters will share how SNOMED CT can be implemented in your environment through their first-hand accounts of working with translation, reference sets and successfully interoperating with other health information standards.
