Project: Snow Owl MQ extensions
To assist the roll-out of the Singapore Drug Dictionary to all of Singapore’s public healthcare institutions, Snow Owl MQ was extended to support SDD searches. In addition to MQ’s semantic and lexical searches, customized SDD drug product searches were integrated. End users throughout Singapore can access the system using their web browser.
Many filters were created for different use cases, such as use by the national procurement office, to prescribing, dispensing, and other use cases.
For additional details on Snow Owl’s techniques for searching terminologies, please see the joint MOHH / B2i presentation Searching SNOMED CT at the 2012 SNOMED CT Showcase, our 2011 Supporting SNOMED CT in Snow Owl presentation, and our 2014 A simple interface for complex queries: searching SNOMED CT content on the web.
For more information on searching semantically encoded electronic health records, please see our 2012 IHTSDO Showcase Semantic Query presentation and our 2011 SNOMED CT Showcase poster Meaningful Query using SNOMED CT.
