We make an online SNOMED CT terminology service available to demonstrate this technology to health software developers
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 software developers to demonstrate this technology.
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.
The terminology service is provided for demonstration purposes only to help developers learn how to use a terminology service in health software.
The service is available and supported during daytime business hours on a best efforts basis.
The service is supported by the standards team at Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand.
