SNOMED CT ™ is the most functional terminology used in healthcare.  It offers benefits for information sharing and decision support.  It is a key element for electronic health record systems and safe healthcare in the computer age.

However, using SNOMED CT ™ is not just about adding another code system.  Clear clinical meaning in health records takes skill. Implementation into computer systems also needs special tools and skills.

Want to know what SNOMED CT ™ is all about?

eHE and it’s collaborators have been actively involved in training people in healthcare including SNOMED CT ™ for many years.  We have provided input to universities, training organisations and the IHTSDO.  The courses developed are based upon job roles.  They are designed to be taken in small achievable units, when needed. The courses offer assessment to build or confirm the skills.  Certificates of successful completion are provided.  These courses fit the level of post-graduate education and are regularly quality assessed.
