SNOMED terminology is being introduced for clinical coding in emergency care in New Zealand. This includes emergency departments and ambulance, with SNOMED reference sets used to code clinical impressions, diagnoses, medicines and procedures. There is a challenge for software developers to build a RESTful SNOMED code finder web service and to use this in new clinical workstation solutions. Terminology services such as this are essential alongside rich data services such as FHIR services.
