1 21/02/20141 Informal Consultation on Nomenclatures for Medical Devices World Health Organization, Headquarters March 2011 Geneva, Switzerland Martin Severs Chair IHTSDO Management Board

2 Presentation This full slide deck will be available to all participants It answers the WHO Conflict of Interest questions It answers the WHO criteria questions A subset will be presented in the IHTSDO agenda slot to fill the available time allocation [11.35 – rd March] 21/02/20142

3 Martin Severs: UK Representative I am a Director and Chair [non-paid] of the Management Board of the IHTSDO which has a duty of care over tax payers money from 15 countries. The IHTSDO: Owns SNOMED CT which has medical device content Receives funding from the UK government [among others] Has a legal agreement with WHO Is in active detailed business discussion with GMDN Agency Has an MoU with Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers re: the medical device informatics standards 14 th December 2009 Has an ongoing dialogue with Continua Alliance 21/02/20143

4 Potential Conflicts: Organisational The IHTSDO Strategic Position is: SNOMED CT does contain medical device terminology. Its Member countries need that terminology enhanced to meet the prescribing, investigatory, therapeutic and clinical safety use cases, which goes beyond the regulatory use case. The IHTSDO intends to deliver that terminology unless there is a change of instruction from its Member countries NOTE: The IHTSDO is in harmony with and not competitive against regulatory use cases and regulatory nomenclatures. 21/02/20144

5 Key Points about IHTSDO IHTSDO is a Danish Association [Not for Profit] [Reg: May 2007] IHTSDO owns SNOMED CT IHTSDO Controlled by its Members via published Articles of Association: Strong Governance 1 Member: 1 vote 15 countries who are now Members; a further 8 in active discussion Business Model is national subscription and single license for users and making product widely available Separated Management from Governance; Members stay in control. Duty to harmonise where possible {Stated in AoA} Strong values and principles: openness, transparency and fairness, principle of avoiding duplication; effort, resources, etc 21/02/20145

14 21/02/ Benefits of IHTSDO Membership Proprietary licencing model to co-ownership New governance arrangements Fair share funding model based on World Bank metrics Greater adoption Share implementation experience Share risk Share costs Remove obsolescence risk and cost Drive global patient record interoperability Country risk cost over time Previous IHTSDO Reduction Time Risk Cost

15 Licensing of SNOMED CT Single form of end-user license (Affiliate License) Permits world-wide use of International Release of SNOMED CT Affiliates pay : No Charges to IHTSDO for use: In any Member nation. All obligations are met by the Member through their IHTSDO membership agreement. Cost-recovery is permitted In low income countries In approved research projects In humanitarian use cases Charges as set by the IHTSDO for use in non-Member nations when outside no charge categories 21/02/201415

16 21/02/ Understanding Licensing CORE Specifs Derivatives Documents and software Extensions Derivatives Documents and software Members National Release Works licensed by Member (forming part of Members National Release) International Release (licensed by IHTSDO)
