|HL7Connect: Snomed-CT Support|
Snomed-CT is a structured terminology that is widely used in healthcare. Created by the College of American Pathologists, it is now maintained by the International Healthcare Terminology Standards Development Organization. CDA clinical codes are often taken from Snomed-CT, and in some countries this is a required use.
Because of the way that Snomed-CT licensing works, HL7Connect does not include it's own copy of the definitions. If you wish to use the Snomed reasoner, you will need to Import a set of Snomed Definitions.
Note that the import requires about 1GB of memory, and a loaded snomed set uses 100MB extra RAM. These numbers are variable - they depend on the specifics of the snomed data loaded. The amount of work remaining during an import is a best guess based on the last imported data set.
