CIHI Presents Laying the Groundwork for Semi-automated Coding

As health care organizations in Canada adopt clinical terminologies within their EHR’s there is an increased need for maps to enable efficiencies through semi-automation of classification codes. CIHI have developed maps from SNOMED CT to ICD-10-CA, for use within electronic health record to facilitate the re-use of point of care data captured by clinicians in acute care settings, and from SNOMED CT to ICD-9 for use in electronic medical records to provide a standardized approach for collecting health concern information in primary care and support patient level physician billing data collection in Canada.
