OBJECTIVES (a) To determine the extent and range of errors and issues in the Systematised Nomenclature of Medicine-Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT) hierarchies as they affect two practical projects. (b) To determine the origin of issues raised and propose methods to address them. METHODS The hierarchies for concepts in the Core Problem List Subset published by the Unified Medical Language System were examined for their appropriateness in two applications. Anomalies were traced to their source to… CONTINUE READING
