External SDO and Code System Issues HTA Content Pages Review


Not done due to (related) topic below

TopicSOLORNewIoana and Keith (guests)

SOLOR - the project creating the VHA extension for SNOMED-CT
LOINC extension created as part of S-CT-LOINC collaborative agreement
There is also a Logica (SNOMED) extension....which may to transition to HL7

When populating a FHIR Profile, the terminology requirements can be difficult to meet using existing content from existing code systems, especially at the initial testing stages.

There is a Military Service History IG wishing to use "an extension" created in SOLOR - as a SNOMED extension (RF2 file)

What is the metadata (and particularly the identification) that would be used for this content?

Next step: To discuss with Vocab and to make sure that LOINC and SNOMED folk are invited to share in the discussion
