International Health Terminology Standards Development Organisation


Provider: IHTSDO (International Health Terminology Standards Organisation)
Descriptions: IHTSDO is a not-for-profit association that develops and promotes use of SNOMED CT to support safe and effective health information exchange. SNOMED CT is a clinical terminology and is considered to be the most comprehensive multilingual healthcare terminology in the world... Each year, avoidable deaths and injuries occur because of poor communication between healthcare practitioners. The delivery of a standard clinical language for use across the world's health information systems can therefore be a significant step towards improving the quality and safety of healthcare.
