Medical records are changing, and at the same time the skills that clinicians require to ensure that information is recorded correctly are changing too. In the past students learned to navigate large, heavy and complicated paper records. Now doctors, nurses and other health workers must be able to enter information into electronic records that could be read by someone in a completely different setting or used by an electronic algorithm to monitor safety or suggest treatments. Snomed CT is a comprehensive clinical healthcare terminology and can be a vital tool to make sure that information is stored in a way that carries meaning and allows us to get the maximum benefit from electronic records. With an informal style and minimum of technical jargon this book will take you from no knowledge of Snomed to having all of the skills to make the most of this flexible and comprehensive tool in coding clinical information.About the author: Gavin Jamie is a medical doctor who has worked in the National Health Service for over twenty years, for the last eighteen years of that time as a General Practitioner. He has an interest in healthcare informatics and has written extensively in the medical press about the Quality and Outcomes Framework and other subjects related to the accurate entry of medical data.
