Clinical information systems and consumer health platforms can be integrated with our new online terminology service to use SNOMED CT
Our new SNOMED CT terminology service is part of the New Zealand Health Terminology Service we are building. We provide the terminology service as a free public good to New Zealand health providers and their industry partners for development and production use in clinical information systems and consumer health platforms.
Under our interoperability roadmap, we will also be introducing terminology services for the New Zealand Pathology Observation Code Sets (NZPOCS) and our other standard code sets.
The service is available on the internet via a standard FHIR(R) application programming interface (API) at https://snomednz.digital.health.nz/fhir.
The NZ Formulary team is building a FHIR API for access to the NZ Universal List of Medicines and NZ Formulary content.
Using the terminology service
SNOMED International's Snowstorm terminology server is the software used. See the Snowstorm GitHub repository for instructions on using the API.
Here are some examples of its use.
