Dedalus to deliver solution for the Netherlands National Terminology Services
Unveiling the Unified Tool for Easy Data Sharing in Healthcare
Milan, 2023 September 15th . Nictiz, the Dutch national competence centre for digital information management in healthcare are working with Dedalus and CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency to deliver their terminology solution. This solution will enable mapping codes between different organisations to be faster and easier.
Nictiz develops and maintains national standards for the exchange of healthcare information and is also the national release centre for SNOMED CT in the Netherlands. In order to make healthcare in the Netherlands future-proof, a National Health Information Strategy was established. As part of that strategy, they needed a way to centralise knowledge and allow users to easily find and implement data standards.
Chantal Schiltmeijer, technical implementation advisor Nictiz said:
“Working with Dedalus to deliver a solution based on our National Terminology Services will drive greater adoption of standard terminology across all our health and care settings and it gives us a secure, reliable and robust environment that is fully managed.
The National Terminology Server (NTS) is far more than a standard FHIR-server and makes it easier for systems to use the same code systems, but without all the development effort – that’s where the “magic” of this technology happens.”
