Subset Description :
This subset is designed for use by the subset service in the maintenance of subsets to filter concepts from subsets that are unlikely to be of utility in the health record of an individual. Typically this includes: > Structural concepts in SNOMED CT e.g. Navigational concepts and concept modelling concepts > Square bracket concepts of classification origin > Grouping concepts, e.g. finding of ability of... and ....status (but not the concepts intended for the record) > And/or and Or concepts, where the meaning would not be clear in the record. Some excepts exist, particularly where a concept describes an untoward incident > A small number of concepts are included for operational reasons, to suppress duplicate concepts identified during the subset development process. These will be resolved in the usual way in a later publication of the terminology. Whilst this subset has undergone clinical review, one of the drivers for making this subset publicly available, is to welcome feedback to enhance it.

Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
It has been suggested by some that this subset could be used to filter search results in an EPR to limit the selection of less meaningful concepts, however this is not the purpose for which it was designed. Should people wish to extend it's use in this way we would suggest consideration with the SNOMED CT implementation team to consider both design choices and impacts of the use of this or any similar subset.
