The SNOMED CT Catalan Extension is the national edition of SNOMED CT for Catalonia. It is maintained and distributed by the Interoperability and Technologies Area of the TIC Salut Social Foundation for the Department of Health of Catalonia. It collects all the concepts, descriptions and relationships in Catalan and Spanish used in the region, as well as the different subsets used in a wide range of areas in the Catalan Health System.
The entire management of the Catalan Extension is carried out in collaboration with working groups of clinical and social professionals in the Catalan Health System who express their needs.
As SNOMED’s National Reference Centre in Catalonia, we are responsible for maintaining and updating the SNOMED CT Catalan Extension and its Reference Sets during the year, issuing an annual publication, based on the Catalan Health System’s needs.
