Subset Description :
The rheumatology diagnosis concept subset consists of a set of SNOMED CT concepts which correspond to a comprehensive set of diagnoses which is necessary and sufficient for rheumatological practice. The initial release of this subset was limited to the domains of inflammatory arthritis and connective tissue diseases. For April 2015 content has been added to cover soft tissue diseases - more additions to the soft tissue content will be made in subsequent releases following further discussions with orthopaedic, sports medicine and rheumatology experts. For October 2015 content to represent vasculitis disorders has been added. Additional domains will be added to subsequent releases.
