About

What is the Health Terminologies Community?

The Health Terminologies Community is a place to share and learn about new and existing implementations of, and updates to, health-related terminologies, terminology subsets, and classification systems used in Canada.

Members actively contribute to discussions and share information and advice related to the implementation, development, maintenance, and use of multiple vocabularies in various health-related projects.

This community is responsive to its membership, actively encouraging, welcoming, and relying on the submission of discussion topics, agenda items, and other items such as education and vendor engagement from its members.

The community will engage and collaborate with other groups or InfoCentral communities on broader related topics when relevant.

Major reference terminologies and classification systems of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • SNOMED CT
  • LOINC/pCLOCD
  • CCDD (Canadian Clinical Drug Dataset)
  • ICD-10-CA
  • ATC

Canada Health Infoway is the National Release Centre (NRC) for SNOMED CT, pCLOCD, and HL7 in Canada.

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is responsible for the development and publication of ICD-10-CA (the Canadian modification of ICD-10), as well as CCI (Canadian Classification of Health Interventions).

To become a member of this community select Join Group in the Group Menu.

If you have an idea for a community, working group, or project that will drive interoperability forward, let us know! Send your suggestions to standards@infoway-inforoute.ca.

Linda Parisien replied to a discussion in Health Terminologies

Hi Mukesh, Thank you for replying to the questions, this is much appreciated. As you mentioned this is a very good example where postcoordination could be used and I agree with you. The problem we have is the lack of support in the different Information Systems that are in use in Canada. One other challenge is to ensure that the systems also provide an "equivalency" mechanism to ensure different presentations of the same idea is recognized as being equivalent semantically. I'm hoping that with more mature implementations the postcoordination expressions will be easier to integrate, use and manage. Once the "superficial" term is removed form the current "skin" concepts, would there still be a use case to expect the "superficial" term with the foreigh body?

Hi Mukesh. Thanks for your post. The MTUG will be meeting again to review progress on the tool on July 27th. All details can be found ..., and feedback is welcomed. I would suspect that any issues you have encountered so far are because development has really just begun / is far from complete. Much more to come! Hope this helps, Kelly

Mukesh Kashyap replied to a discussion in Health Terminologies

Hi Andrea, Thank you for sharing the tool but just wondering if their are any mapping samples (before and after the mapping) are available; although few sample sets available but seems created by individual testers. If the purpose of testing this tool it seems friendly but I was not able to do much; keep getting errors (i.e. file format, column length, duplicates etc...). Any available sample mapping before and after using this tool will be helpful. Thanks
