Hello, At this point I think that is the only option. I want to believe that the SNOMED CT Expression Constraint Language has been designed with a future evolution of SNOMED CT in mind, where concepts will be enriched with numerical values. For example, SNOMED CT now contains a set of Virtual Medical Products (VMP) such as " Amoxicillin 400mg/5mL suspension (product)" with two relationships: - Has active ingredient → Amoxicillin - Has dose form → Oral suspension If these relationships are enriched with the medication strength, then the VMP concepts would be better defined and could be queried using the numerical options of the constraint language.
