Use Case Name: Subsumption Queries

  • Description: The ability to find all concepts that are a subtype of a specified concept identifier.
    • For instance, when searching SNOMED CT, I need to find all concepts that are a subtype of 243796009 "Context-dependent Categories" with an AssociatedFinding relationship to 195967001 "Asthma" or any of its descendants.
  • Who needs it and why? - The ability to query against the description logic of a code system is a common requirement. Often value sets are made up of the deendents of a specified code (somtimes excluding the parent code(s))
  • Why should this be standardized? - While the DL for specific code systems often differ, the base requirement for identifying the child concepts for a parent is a requirement, that should be standardized across and within code systems.
