    SNOMED CT Analytics in the NHS: Acceptance and Readiness
                   Jeremy Rogers, NHS Digital, and Jay Kola, Noesis Informatica

   This session explores a number of practical issues around secondary uses of point-of-care records with terminology content in SNOMED CT. Theory is not enough – it needs to work for real, in the field.

  • Getting the terminology into the records:
    • Arguing the benefits: Why now? What will SNOMED CT give me that I don’t already have?
    • Enablers for technical readiness – obvious and not so obvious
    • Getting to grips with Analytics:
      • How does SNOMED CT change the game?
        • Comparing specific use cases with and without SNOMED CT
  • What tools and methods are needed to realize the benefits? Who needs what?

 There will be a short break with tea/coffee available around 1530.

   Pulling together the threads of the day - Opportunities & next steps?
                    Discussion, facilitated by Ann Wrightson

            Wrap & close
                   Rik Smithies, HL7 UK TC Chair
