Subset Description :
A number of suppliers and Trusts have asked for support to make it easier for clinicians to find co-morbid conditions that their clinical staff should be recording to ensure that the electronic record can be analysed by clinical coders and coded appropriately. Over time, as primary care also moves to SNOMED CT, much of this information may become available as part of the patient’s Summary Care Record, but in order to assist clinicians a SNOMED CT subset has been created. It is likely that some form of search or filtering would be advantageous in many interfaces, as even this limited subset contains 65 members, and a significant number of patients will have multiple co-morbid conditions, so the ability to select multiple concepts is essential.
