Hello, For clarification purposes within the introduction to the Health Terminologies page, it would be good to mention that CIHI is responsible for the development of ICD-10-CA (the Canadian modification of ICD-10, as well as CCI (Canadian Classification of Health Interventions). Thanks, Alana Lane Program Lead, Classifications&Terminologies, CIHI

Infoway is pleased to announce the release of TermManager, a new terminology mapping tool that works with TermsWorks to significantly enhance the creation and maintenance of terminology maps. The TermManager mapping tool allows users to map existing local data to SNOMED CT via a simple web-based interface. TermManager leverages the semantic matching algorithms employed by TermWorks, plus role-based security, multi-user workflow options, and flexible output formats to help users complete all their terminology mapping projects. TermManager is planned to be operational by end of August 2018. Further information about the tool, the training schedule and how to get started will be posted on this forum in early August 2018. Regards, Salve Achacoso Standards SME
