Team Leader
Clinical Terminology

The Clinical Terminology team develops, implements and provides advice around standard terminologies such as SNOMED CT.

Our Science

Our main scientific goals include improving clinical data quality (accurately capturing meaning) and effectively dealing with patient information spread across the Australian healthcare system.
Key challenges include:

    • improving data quality using standardised clinical terminologies and developing standardised information models
    • improving SNOMED CT implementations
    • developing techniques for using SNOMED CT for data analytics

Impact on the Health System

AEHRC technologies are now being used to collect data using key healthcare standards, such as FHIR, and standard terminologies such as SNOMED CT. The aim of these technologies is to increase the value that can be gained from electronic health data, and improve patient outcomes as well as health system performance and productivity.

Our Solutions

    • snoMAP tool for Emergency Department funding
    • Royal Australasian College of Surgeons SNOMED implementation for reporting
