How much clinical terminology is good for you?

Ann Wrightson of the NHS Wales Informatics Service, who has for years been part of the XML developer community and since 2009 chaired the HL7 UK Technical Committee, asks "How much clinical terminology is good for you?" Purist views range from regarding full expression in SNOMED as the only useful thing to do, to the acceptance of scanned documents (with a light sprinkle of metadata) as quite good enough, thank you. As ever, real projects steer a middle way through numerous trade-offs. Her talk presents a personal perspective with examples from recent work in NHS Wales.
