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.

Dear Health Terminologies community. There are a couple of agenda items on the HL7 Canada community call that might be of interest to you. The call is today (Tuesday June 4 at noon: https://infocentral.infoway-inforoute.ca/en/news-events/event-calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2019/06/04/2769/165/hl7-canada-community-call) HL7 International and the Gender Harmony project. This project is trying to determine all of the different ways that sex and gender are identified. The call had good international participation yesterday and included members of DICOM Working Group 6 (the workgroup that maintains the base DICOM standard) presented some of their unique gender and sex identify issues as part of this discussion. All future discussions about the Gender Harmony project will take place in the HL7 Canada Community as this is an HL7 International project, so please subscribe to the HL7 Canada forum to stay connected. More information about the HL7 Gender Harmony project can be found here: https://confluence.hl7.org/display/VOC/The+Gender+Harmony+Project All are welcome at both the HL7 Canada community meeting and to participate in the Gender Harmony project. Thank you. Regards, Andrea
