Affiliate Forum

IHTSDO is keen to support and enable broader and better use of SNOMED CT around the world. To this end, the concept of an Affiliate Forum was outlined in the Organization's Articles of Association. The Forum brings together users of SNOMED CT from around the world - a diverse and representative community of vendors, implementers, and other Affiliate License holders - to exchange views, share experiences, and provide advice to the IHTSDO on how best to support those who are implementing SNOMED CT.

The Affiliate Forum was launched at the October 2008 IHTSDO Community of Practice Meetings. More information about the Affiliate Forum and its activities is available in the Affiliate Forum Collaborative Space

See also information about Affiliate Licenses.

Marc Horowitz is the Chair of the Affiliate Forum.

To join the Affiliate Form please see the instructions on the Home Page of the Affiliate Forum Collaborative Space.
