ASSESS CT Recommendations

The goal of ASSESS CT is to make a significant contribution to the debate on semantic interoperability (SIOP) of eHealth services in Europe. It focuses on SNOMED CT and studies its potential as a core reference terminology for EU-wide deployment.
The recommendations are a distillation of the findings from many areas of project investigation, across its different work packages, and the results of consultations undertaken within Europe and with transatlantic colleagues on several occasions in 2016.
Methodologically, the adoption of SNOMED CT as a core reference terminology has been scrutinised against two alternative scenarios: to abstain from actions at the EU level, and to devise an EU-wide semantic interoperability framework alternative without SNOMED CT.
