Approach to Coding/Profiling URL allocation

nameuriaccept?comment
PBS Item Codehttp://pbs.gov.au/code/item PBS Item Code
SNOMED-CT AUhttp://snomed.info/sct 

use Coding.version to identify specific verision eg.

http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107/version/20170131

AMThttp://snomed.info/sct 

Australian Medicines Terminology (same as it is part of SNOMED-CT AU)

use Coding.version to identify specific verision eg.

http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107/version/20170131

  1. I know this is a work in progress, but I saw the notification so while I think of it, AMT is part of SNOMED CT-AU now so just a single URI - 
    http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107/version/{version}
    E.g. http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107/version/20170228 

  2. Note that there is no SNOMED CT-AU or AMT FHIR CodeSystem URI other than http://snomed.info/sct

    The uri listed above (http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107) is a (partial) version URI that identifies the SNOMED CT-AU "Edition", which represents a family of versions.

     

    1. thanks Michael - so for AU use just go for  http://snomed.info/sct for all SNOMED coding including AMT concepts  - right?

      or do we need to be version specific?

  3. I think Michael is saying that in the FHIR world the URI for the code system is always http://snomed.info/sct for all SNOMED CT editions. The version URI is where the distinction of the particular edition and version exists.

    So

    {
        "system": "http://snomed.info/sct",
        "code": "372567009",
        "version": "http://snomed.info/sct/32506021000036107/version/20170131",
        "display": "Metformin"
    }

    The version part is optional, but when specified it includes the edition it is from (in this case SNOMED CT-AU) and the version of that edition (the January 2017 release)

  4. thanks all - very helpful... 

  5. I'd suggest https://www.tga.gov.au/australian-register-therapeutic-goods as the URI for the ARTG. I've contacted the TGA to try and agree with them the appropriate URI and am awaiting a response.

    I've also contacted Steve Ball from the PBS who has confirmed http://pbs.gov.au/code/item for PBS item codes. There are a number of other PBS code systems used in the PBS data and the PBS page https://dev.pbs.gov.au/content/schema/v3.0.p5/doc/html/ontology.html provides good candidate URIs for code systems used in the data. Those URIs starting with http://pbs.gov.au/code/ are the clear candidate URIs for referencing the code systems PBS has. Steve has extracted these into a file that will be included in future PBS releases.

     In my work I've referenced a few of these, but there are rather a lot of them. I'd suggest we add them to the table above as they get used rather than adding a large number. The ones I've used are

    Should I add them above?

    1. Thanks Dion - very helpful. Could you help define where these would get used i.e. against which resources for which elements?

      For manufacturer currently was thinking this is actually an identifier .e.g. http://build.fhir.org/ig/hl7au/au-fhir-base/StructureDefinition-au-pbs-pharma-manufacturer.html especially as there is name and contact details associated with the manufacturing org.  

      it would be great to discuss at next Medications working group meeting.

  6. Hi Brett Esler, I'm drafting some of these national Code Systems and have been questioning the correct identification of them. Dion referred me here. 2 sources of current interest to me are METeOR and ABS. Can you provide any information on how you came to the URIs you've allocated. Did this involve any discussion with them? Thanks

    1. Thanks for asking Liam, I am also interested in the answer to your question.

      Cheers,
      Reuben
