Terminologies and classifications: SNOMED CT-AU and ICD-10-AM use in Australia

The National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS) at the Australian Digital Health Agency, are once again holding live online Q&A style webinars in July and August 2020. These events are a great opportunity to consolidate your understanding about SNOMED CT-AU and the Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) and engage with terminology experts.

This 60-minute session is a repeat of a topic from earlier this year, in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA). The presentation will provide an overview of some of the code sets used in healthcare, specifically clinical terminologies (SNOMED CT-AU) and health classifications (ICD-10-AM), and how they support clinical data entry, communication, reporting and analytics.

Topics will include:

  • Commonly used code sets in health
  • Overview of SNOMED CT-AU
    • Features of this clinical terminology and main use cases
  • Overview of ICD-10-AM
    • Features of this health classification and main use cases
