The SNOMED CT Value Series profiles real world accounts of how SNOMED CT has
been implemented in global health systems, and the value it has delivered.

Harnessing the power of data analytics
Key to Canterbury’s goal was the ability to use data and analytics to understand
why people end up in the health system, who they were and how to intervene more
effectively to reduce the demand on the system and provide better care for patients.
By using SNOMED CT as part of its core infrastructure, including tools that apply
natural language processing to the unstructured text-based data in a clinical record,
the health boards were able to code their existing data to SNOMED CT and then
demonstrate to clinicians the power of using those codes to analyze that data.
