SNOMED CT Value Propositions

Care Providers

Developed by clinicians, SNOMED CT helps Care Providers access a comprehensive source of high-quality patient information and evidence to improve patient outcomes. When embedded in clinical information systems with point-of-care and population analytics, SNOMED CT enhances the quality and timeliness of the clinical data that is available to Care Providers to make patient care decisions. Furthermore, Care Providers, when using interoperability solutions, can more easily share clinical information and documents with both the extended health care team and patients, both locally and across borders.
