Reference Sets

This section allows all users to freely browse or search SNOMED CT-AU reference sets and their metadata as well as those developed by the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia as part of our third party reference set hosting service. To view the metadata, click on the View icon next to the corresponding reference set.

To access the content of these resources, firstly log in, then click on either the FHIR® JSON, FHIR XML or TSV links within the technical metadata. The FHIR download links use the National Terminology Server Integration Interface, which may also be accessed programmatically.

For more information about the Integration Interface and FHIR, see National Terminology Server.

Important file import instructions: If you have configured Microsoft Excel to automatically open TSV 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 ‘Tab’, 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’.
