The Fundació TicSalut presented the Clinical Dictionary for iHealth, the transversal project of the Health Department led by the Office of Standards and Interoperability, which is intended to standardise the controlled vocabulary of the SISCAT. The dictionary uses the SNOMED CT standard as its reference terminology and basic ontology of representation, combining it with other controlled vocabularies such as the CIM-9-MC, CIM-10, LOINC, ATC, etc. The foundation was also able to visit the sessions of software development and the general assembly of the IHTSDO of the Business Meeting, which was held from 26 to 28 October at the same hotel Radisson.
