This work describes a hysteroscopy surgery management application that was designed based on the medical information standard SNOMED. We describe how the application fulfils the needs of this procedure and the way in which existing handwritten medical information is effectively transmitted to the application’s database.

Keywords: Conceptual database design, hysteroscopy, interoperability, medical information management, SNOMED.
