Abstract: 

OBJECTIVES

To extend the coverage of phenotypes in SNOMED CT through post-coordination.

METHODS

We identify frequent modifiers in terms from the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO), which we associate with templates for post-coordinated expressions in SNOMED CT.

RESULTS

We identified 176 modifiers, created 12 templates, and generated 1,617 post-coordinated expressions.

CONCLUSIONS

Through this novel approach, we can increase the current number of mappings by 50%.
