To define the characteristics of the categorial structure required to synthetically describe the organisation and content of surgical procedure terminological systems, in order to support the exchange of meaningful surgical procedure information between different terminological systems using different national languages within Europe. The proposed European Standard is primarily intended for use with computer-based applications such as clinical electronic health records, international and national coding systems, decision support and for various bio-medical research purposes. The proposed European standard itself is not suitable for or intended for use by, the individual clinician or hospital administrator.
