About the programme

This programme aims to provide individuals with a basic understanding of why the use of a standardised language at the point of care across the NHS can provide benefits, as well as a basic introduction to SNOMED CT. It highlights the value of capturing structured data in an electronic health record versus just using narrative or unstructured eNotes.

The session covers:

  • Benefits from structured patient records
  • What is SNOMED CT
  • The need for standard clinical terms
  • Features of SNOMED CT
  • Consequences of poor data quality

SNOMED CT is a national standard (SCCI0034: SNOMED CT ) and a requirement for all care settings within the NHS.

Duration 30 minutes

Primary and secondary audiences

The programme is aimed at all users of electronic health records.
