Implementing SNOMED-CT 2020
Trusts are required to be using SNOMED-CT by 1st April 2020, but is your team fully up-to-date on what to expect? This is the last opportunity for your trust to fully prepare for SNOMED-CT before its compulsory implementation in April. This interactive, informative workshop will guide you through the process from a trust perspective, enabling you to accurately map the demands of the changeover and benefit from lessons learnt by your peers. Take one day out to ensure that your clinical coding team can meet and maximise the requirements to successfully use SNOMED-CT by April 2020.
If your clinical coding and information teams are beginning to prepare for using SNOMED-CT or have recently adopted the SNOMED-CT but are not sure how the process works or need further clarity or guidance, then this workshop is a unique opportunity to discover exactly what to expect and how to utilise it accordingly. Knowledge and insight will be shared not just on how SNOMED-CT works in practice but also how to train your team to use it, so this really is an unmissable training opportunity for anyone involved in this challenging project.
Featuring detailed explanations of challenges faced and what solutions were discovered as well as case study examples of terminology and cross mapping, this workshop is designed to cover all the bases to ensure you can smoothly use SNOMED-CT. Educational sessions will enable you to:
- Explore the relationship between coders and clinicians with practical examples to enhance your multi-disciplinary relationship
- Get to grips with Release Format 2 and familiarise yourself with potential technical challenges
- Plan your transition accurately to ensure you have the right staff, skills and resources
- Predict and overcome your likely challenges, guided by peer insight
- Benefit from time to ask your questions and ensure your own challenges are covered
This timely and engaging workshop is your chance to take a proactive step in the inevitable transition to SNOMED-CT. Previously held in November 2019, it was attended by:
- Clinical Coder, Clinical Coding Manager, Senior Clinical Coder
- Head of Clinical Coding, Clinical Coding Engagement Lead, Project Coder
- Clinical Data Capture Manager, Clinical Systems Developer
- Electronic Patient Record Lead, Health Records/Clinical Coding Lead
- Medical Director, Medical Records Manager
- Data Manager, Senior Classifications Manager
