The Vendor Liaison Forum (VLF) provides a forum for vendors from multiple industry segments that have an active interest in integrating SNOMED CT into their solutions, and influencing the direction of the product from both technology and terminology perspectives.

Our mission is to support the strategic goals of SNOMED International by creating direct links with the vendor community so that you can supply SNOMED CT functionality and benefits directly to your customers.

We will achieve this by:

  •  Providing vendors with a forum to provide recommendations and influence the direction of SNOMED CT from both technology and terminology perspectives. This includes content authoring, implementation/integration tools, product delivery, education and more.
  •  
  •  Working with vendors to reduce the time and investment required to implement and deploy SNOMED CT enabled solutions.
  •  
  •  Working with vendors to demonstrate successful implementations of SNOMED CT across industry segments.
  •  
  •  Removing barriers to adoption for our customers and stakeholders.
  •  
  •  Enabling continuous development of SNOMED CT to meet customer requirements.
  •  
  •  Providing scalable products and services that drive SNOMED CT adoption.
  •  
  •  Setting new trends and shaping new technologies that increase the overall use of SNOMED CT.
  •  

The VLF meets quarterly, with one face-to-face meeting to be held annually during the October Business Meeting and Expo.
