NLM is pleased to announce the availability of new SNOMED CT International Release downloads:

  • LOINC-SNOMED CT Cooperative Project Alpha (Phase 3) Edition
    • The third release of the LOINC-SNOMED CT Cooperative project, which includes both the LOINC Term to SNOMED CT Expression reference set and the LOINC Part to SNOMED CT Map reference set. This Alpha release is dependent upon and should be evaluated in the context of the January 2016 International Release of SNOMED CT and LOINC Version 2.54, released in December 2015.
    • Two additional file formats are available with this release including:
      • OWL file: for reviewing and classifying the content with an ontology reasoner using an ontology viewing/editing software.
      • Human Readable file: an Excel® spreadsheet for reviewing the map of LOINC Terms to SNOMED CT expressions in a human-readable tabular format.

  • General Practitioner/Family Practice Reference Sets and SNOMED CT to ICPC2 Map
    • An updated SNOMED CT International General/Family Practice subset (GP/FP Subset) and map from the GP/FP Subset to the International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC-2). This release is the resulting work from the harmonization agreement between the International Health Terminology Standards and Development Organisation (IHTSDO), and the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA). Users of the map must comply with the licensing agreements of both ICPC-2 and SNOMED CT.

  • ICNP to SNOMED CT (Interventions) Release
    • The International Classification of Nursing Practice (ICNP) to SNOMED CT International Release Nursing Interventions equivalency table is the product of an ongoing collaborative agreement between the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and the IHTSDO. This release contains ICNP to SNOMED CT nursing interventions from the July 2015 release of the ICNP and January 2016 International Release of SNOMED CT.

All downloads are available on the NLM SNOMED CT International Release downloads page with your UMLS Terminology Services login.
