Linking knowledge and systems together seamlessly.

  • Read 2, Clinical Terms Version 3,
  • The NHS Dictionary of Medicines and Devices (dm+d),
  • Regional drug terminologies such as the Irish Pharmaceutical Union codes, the eVADIS codes within the GPASS system in Scotland and the Medusa drug codes used in pharmacy systems in Wales,
  • A range of proprietary drug terminologies, and
  • SNOMED CT based modules (condition checking and substance codes for allergy checking).

"I don't think there is anyone better out there in terms of knowledge and contacts."
