The National Library of Medicine is pleased to announce the availability of two updated SNOMED CT-related releases:

  1. An updated Clinical Observations Recording and Encoding (CORE) Problem List Subset is now available for download. The purpose of the UMLS CORE Project is to define a UMLS subset that is useful for documentation and encoding of clinical information at a summary level, such as a problem list, discharge diagnosis, or reason for encounter. This subset is based on the July 2016 International Release of SNOMED CT and the 2016AA UMLS Release.
  2. An updated Convergent Medical Terminology (CMT) Problem List Subset on the Top 2500 Concepts. This file contains the 2501 most frequently used problem concepts Kaiser Permanente uses within the KP electronic medical record. This release also includes mappings to ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM. SNOMED CT concepts are based on the January 2016 International Release.

The above subsets are available for download by UMLS licensees from the UMLS Terminology Services (UTS).
