Subset Description :
The purpose of the refset is twofold: 1 - it is designed to identify a set of core content that can realistically be exchanged for an odontogram. 2 - a small set may allow Electronic Dental Record (EDR) vendors and the dental payer community to more quickly and inexpensively implement tools that will allow for their use. The odontogram refset contains primarily terms from four of the SNOMED CT hierarchies: The most common one is Procedures, but it also includes several Body Structures and some Findings and Disorders. A primary consideration of this refset is its ability to represent different time perspectives. It is designed to differentiate between procedures that were completed elsewhere, completed previously by this clinic/clinician or is planned treatment that is represented on the odontogram visualization. While there may be merit in defining a similar contextual representation for the findings and disorders, this set may not contain all of the necessary terms to properly do so.

Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
The Odontogram refset is designed as a tool for use by EDR vendors to develop and communicate an odontogram visualization with standard formats and terms that can allow for population of another odontogram visualization in a different (or the same) software system in a manner that dental clinicians will be able to readily understand with minimal effort or training. Use cases: 1.Creating an initial visualization of a tooth chart for a patient new to this clinician/practice 2.Updating the visualization of a current patient to maintain an accurate clinical record 3.Provide a reasonably complete representation of a patient’s current oral condition to other clinicians and for proper record documentation. 4.Provide a structured set of terms for information exchange among clinicians.
