International Health Terminology Standards Development Organisation

The IHTSDO (International Health Terminology Standards Development Organization) is an international not-for-profit organization based in Denmark. IHTSDO owns and administers the rights to SNOMED CT and related terminology standards. They have published the Newsletter of February 2014.

IHTSDO announced a new SNOMED CT Starter Guide. In about fifty pages it provides a clear summary of a broad range of key topics. We highly recommended this guide for everybody who is interested in this field.

It's announced that Portugal is a new membership in IHTSDO.

Finally, it's announced that a new Web portal is currently developing. This new Web portal will enable the IHTSDO team to configure, manage, release and validate SNOMED CT products. The prototype, along with documentation, will be available online in time for the April IHTSDO business meetings.
