Definition:The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT) was adopted for the following CHI domains: laboratory result contents, non-laboratory interventions and procedures, anatomy, diagnosis and problems, and nursing. The CAP and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) entered into an agreement to provide the SNOMED CT core content via the NLM´s Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) at no charge to those who execute a license agreement. This agreement is for healthcare applications and uses within the US and any application of use of SNOMED CT by any US government facility or office, whether permanent or temporary, wherever located. (See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/ for more information.) Health care entities can also choose to obtain SNOMED CT as a stand-alone terminology directly from SNOMED International at (http://www.snomed.org).
