Free Set of SNOMED Terms for Use with International Patient Summary

The set of standards to implement the Patient Summary is really coming together. This week, during the HIMSS in Orlando, SNOMED International and HL7 International announced the availability of a free set of SNOMED CT terms for use in the HL7 International Patient Summary. This is very good news for CEN and Europe! The Patient Summary standard for Europe (EN 17269), that will be published in the upcoming months, can now be implemented easily using the HL7 IPS standards and the SNOMED CT value sets, even in countries that do not have a license for SNOMED CT. Please see here the official press release by HL7 and SNOMED
