About SNOMED CT Expo 2018


SNOMED CT is the most comprehensive and precise clinical health terminology product in the world, owned and distributed around the world by SNOMED International.

SNOMED CT has been developed collaboratively to ensure it meets the diverse needs and expectations of the worldwide medical profession and is now accepted as a common global language for health terms.

Patients and healthcare professionals benefit from improved health records, clinical decisions and analysis, leading to higher quality, consistency and safety in healthcare delivery.
