The Terminology Centre of the Federal Public Service Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment organises its second seminar on terminology in Brussels on 23 September 2016.
The seminar aims at providing a status on the implementation of SNOMED CT (Systemised Nomenclature of Medicine) as a standard language for clinical use. Recently, a number of work groups have been created to provide input on the different focus areas to be included in the Belgian National Release. Various user groups such as general practitioners, nurses, hospitals, etc. will contribute to the conference, and also the latest updates on LOINC (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes), the standard language for labs, will be shared.
Nathalie De Sutter, managing partner of Untranslate and consultant for the FPS Health, will present the infrastructure that has been implemented to support the Dutch and French translation process, allowing domain specialists to contribute to the translation and validation of the SNOMED concepts in an efficient and user friendly way.
