Formal clinical terminology is at the confluence of medicine and technology. SNOMED is the result of a multi-disciplinary effort by diverse experts. With over a decade working with clinical experts, terminologists and logicians, Robert has experience bringing them together to forge solutions that could not have been delivered by one group alone.
Clinical and technical teams do different work, have different ways of looking at the same things, and speak different languages. With over a decade bridging the clinical/technical divide to deliver working software and quality assured terminology products, Robert is the man to fill critical facilitator, product owner and business analyst roles.
With SNOMED, clinicians can communicate clinical information across boundaries, and reuse information to make healthcare safer and more effective for patients. Inconsistent use of SNOMED defeats these objectives. Terminology management is complex and error prone. It’s difficult to demonstrate the quality of your terminology products. Robert’s experience of the complexities can help your teams manage these risks.
