Important file import instructions: If you have configured Microsoft Excel to automatically open CSV files, it will assume certain field types to be General or Whole Number and the identifiers and some text may be displayed incorrectly resulting in concept ID errors and strange characters for words with accents (e.g. Ménière’s Diseases).

To avoid this, users should first open Excel, and import the file (not simply open), specify the File Origin field as ‘Unicode (UTF-8)’, Delimiter field as ‘Comma’, then select Transform Data and highlight each column (don’t forget to scroll right) and ensure all term description and ID columns are set with Data Type as ‘Text’.

SNOMED CT-AU Change Reports, CSV

This zip file contains two Comma Separated Values (CSV) files that report on changes to the SNOMED CT-AU (including the AMT) monthly release compared with the previous release.

  • SNOMED CT-AU Concept Changes CSV File – lists new and retired concepts, along with their preferred terms;
  • SNOMED CT-AU Associations CSV File – lists retired or changed concepts, reasons for the change, and suggested replacements.

Rows in these files can represent either active or inactive content. The CSV format forgoes the SNOMED CT RF2 structure to provide a human readable delta file that can easily be imported into Microsoft Excel or related applications (see Important file import instructions above). They include SNOMED CT identifiers, Australian preferred terms, and semantic tags.

You can filter on content of interest using the semantic tag, status, and the content type columns.
