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 Monico created a new discussion in Health Terminologies
Hello all, We need your help in assessing the usage and continued need of this ... created for Canada in 2009. At the WInter 2018 Lab LOINC Conference & Committee meeting, the issue of these codes appearing and being transmitted as laboratory result content in the U.S. was brought forward and discussed. The issue is the inadvertent mapping of these LOINC Codes by U.S. mappers. As a result, we have been asked to investigate the use of these codes with the Canadian LOINC Community to determine whether or not deprecating them would be feasible. We are asking all jurisdictions to help us identify if and how these codes are being used to provide rationale and supporting information to keep these codes if we are indeed using them and cannot find alternate codes. If you have any helpful information to provide in this investigation and research, we would appreciate it and value your contributions. Please send your feedback to standards@infoway-inforoute.ca. Thank you kindly, Linda Monico Product Specialist, Digital Health Engagement & Marketing, Canada Health Infoway
