Comment on Clinical Information Standards Specification Phase 2: Optimising and augmenting

  • Comment ID: 9
What does coded in 'SNOMED CT coded care records' mean?. Is this the correct terminology to use? Its confusing when we think of coding referring to classifications.

Has any risk assessment been done to identify any potential burden to Trusts or data quality with the introduction of 3 new fundamental standards - i.e. SNOMED CT, ICD-11 and a replacement for OPCS-4?

Its good to hear pilot sites being mentioned for the new procedure classification, but why when OPCS-4 is an implemented standard that we know works and we can draw data and derive payment from are you only talking about pilot sites for OPCS-4, shouldn't there be pilot sites for SNOMED CT seeing as that's not yet implemented in secondary care and it should be proved how it will work?

Pleased to see the intention is to strike a balance, recognising the required knowledge of the full patient record for complex cases. Transforming from SNOMED CT to ICD or OPCS-4 does not just involve a semantic match between the entities. It requires an expert understanding of the semantic meaning of the concept (source) as well as the business rules associated with the classification codes (target). The statistical record is a snapshot of the patient encounter presented in such a way to ensure

'The SNOMED CT returns will be mapped to the new classification standard at the national system level.' - This gives the impression that all procedures will be mapped from SNOMED to the new procedure classification but this will need some kind of data quality input. Procedure coding is complex and it would be interested to see if its possible to do this without some kind of human input.
