What is the Global Patient Set?
The GPS is a managed list of existing SNOMED CT unique identifiers, fully specified names (FSN), preferred terms in international English, and status flags, made available at no cost to users.
The GPS supports the sharing of patient health information coded with SNOMED CT without the need for a SNOMED International license.
Note: The Global Patient Set excludes SNOMED CT’s inherent relationships and hierarchies; fundamental to the nature of an ontology and its ability to enable clinical data analytics, decision support, artificial intelligence, etc.
