The Kennedy Centre is a Danish national research and consultancy centre specializing in congenital metabolic disorders and other rare diseases.
The Centre is using an EHR in their consultancy with patients. They have created a custom code system which consists of parts of ICD-10 and additional codes specific to their research to register the genetic disease diagnoses. It was a challenge to use a Danish local code system extension when publishing findings and statistics internationally. Because of this need, they conducted a pilot mapping projectto ascertain whether the international terminology SNOMED CT® could be mapped to their local codes to produce statistics that could be internationally understood.
The Kennedy Centre local codes were imported into HealthTerm, and mapped toSNOMED CT®. The Kennedy Centre successfully proved they can exchange their national statistical data with internationally understood information expressed in SNOMED CT®.
