Syntactic and semantic interoperability is the basis for data exchange and the correct interpretation of data between information systems. Standards such as the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) enable structured presentation and consistent syntax. Connected to CDA, the terminology SNOMED CT can be used as a semantic component for the exchange of data.
ART-DECOR® is a cloud-based open-source tool that provides users of different professions with a common work platform. Thus, health care providers, terminologists, and programmers can use the platform to generate records, value sets, and HL7 CDA templates (reusable building blocks) in joint projects.
In this tutorial, the application of SNOMED CT in the ART-DECOR tool is presented via practical examples. The option of coding quality assurance is examined, especially addressing the TermInfo-challenge.
