SNOMED and ICD-10 … happy together?

Recently two groups: The American College of Physicians and the Texas Medical Association, advocated using SNOMED, the Systemized Nomenclature of Medicine – Clinical Terms (SNOMED-CT).

ACP actually advocates a 2014 implementation for ICD-10 and wants to see if the codes can be automated from SNOMED.

TMA would like ICD-10 scrapped and replaced either with SNOMED-CT or ICD-11.
