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 [email protected]

The next IFCC webinar: "D-dimers and different clinical applications" July 6, 2022 Dimers is a determination that has several applications. Its classic use is to rule out thrombosis and can be also used to predict its recurrence. D-Dimer (DD) is a molecule that comes from the degradation of stabilized fibrin. Its presence indicates fibrinolysis secondary to the formation of a fibrin clot. Therefore, it constitutes a specific marker of fibrinolytic activity in processes that produce excessive fibrin formation, even without being thrombotic. In relation to cancer, it can be used to exclude thrombosis, also as a predictor of venous thromboembolism, as a prognosis of recurrence of thrombosis, and as a prognostic factor for the disease. This webinar comprises three following presentations of 20 min each followed by 20 min of a panel discussion at the end. Talk 1: DDIMERS AND THROMBOSIS - Dr. Gloria Ramos Talk 2: DDIMERS AND CANCER IN PEDIATRICS - Prof. Yudiana Montenegro Talk 3: DDIMERS AND COVID 19 - Dr. Alejandro Morales de la Vega Schedule: 20 min per speaker plus 20 min panel discussion Time Zones: Live presentations starting at: 11:00AM EDT-New York ; 5:00PM CET-Rome; 11:00PM CST-Beijing; Important: Please ensure that you carefully determine the time that the presentation will start in your global time zone.
