Over the years, Apelon has helped create and manage SNOMED CT, ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, and many more. We can help you manage your internal terminology needs, too.

The best answer is to just use an externally produced standard terminology... why reinvent the wheel? One answer we hear over and over is that the available wheels just don't fit. Your business has unique aspects, legacy processes, and user expectations that today's vocabularies can't manage, so you've built your own. 

We've been doing terminology for a long time: from our early days building the Unified Medical Language System for the US National Library of Medicine to our work on niche vocabularies for cancer research, eye care and other specialties, to our long partnerships with the care providers who use standards in their practice, we've developed a wealth of experience and expertise.

Today, our consulting team can put that expertise to work for you. We can help you extend an existing standard, integrate your legacy ontologies, or build a new international standard from scratch. We offer services to optimize each phase of the terminology development lifecycle. And, because we aren't tied to a particular software system (our flagship DTS is open source and freely available), you can count on us to give you unbiased advice.
