Two Updated SNOMED CT Resources. NLM Tech Bull. 2017 Sep-Oct;(418):b6.

2017 September 19 [posted]

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce the availability of two updated SNOMED CT resources:

  1. CORE Problem List Subset of SNOMED CT
    The Clinical Observations Recordings and Encoding (CORE) Problem List Subset defines a Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) subset that is most useful for documenting and encoding clinical information at a summary level. The CORE Problem List Subset includes SNOMED CT concepts and codes that can be used for the problem list, discharge diagnoses, or reason of encounter. This updated subset is derived from the July 2017 SNOMED CT International Edition and UMLS Metathesaurus version 2017AA.

  2. LOINC – SNOMED CT Cooperative Package
    This release contains two content files: a LOINC Term to SNOMED CT Expression Reference Set and a LOINC Part to SNOMED CT Reference Set. The Beta content is release under the 715515008 | LOINC - SNOMED CT Cooperation Project module with concept identifiers from the 220170731 version of the International release of SNOMED CT and Version 2.58 of LOINC released December 2016.

These resources are available for download by UMLS licensees from the UMLS Terminology Services (UTS).
