“Connectingnhs for Health in the UK (NHS) was responsible for building national standard subsets based on SNOMED CT® to be used in the UK. Both simple subsets but also more complex subsets which should be easily maintained were required and NHS therefore needed a tool for creating subsets. The Terminology Centre in Leeds used the HealthTerm® Subset Module to build national subsets of SNOMED CT®, which upon approval could be subscribed to by trusts, PCTs and EHR vendors. HealthTerm® was the pivot of the Terminology Centre’s work with creation, maintenance, validation and distribution of 400+ SCT subsets.”
