I am proud to announce that I have been elected to the International Health Terminology Standards Development Organisation (IHTSDO) Quality Assurance Committee. My tenure on the Committee begins in January.
The IHTSDO is an international not-for-profit organization based in Denmark that owns and administers the rights to SNOMED CT and related terminology standards. Its mission is to improve human health by fostering the development and use of suitable standardized clinical terminologies in order to support safe, accurate, and effective exchange of clinical and related health information. Its focus is on enabling the implementation of semantically accurate health records that are interoperable; thus IHTSDO’s work is critical to the continued growth & implementation of the EHR/EMR.
I am looking forward to helping the Committee further its mission.
