UNICOM Community of Expertise: Medicinal Product Dictionaries, Medicinal Product Dictionaries, ATC, Melclass

April 29, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The importance of medicinal product dictionaries (MPDs) is highlighted by two concrete examples. MPDs bring together the information on medicinal products from NCA and a variety of sources. Making sure that the identification of the medicinal product across these sources can be done automatically and without error, makes the implementation of IDMP such a crucial task. In addition to the IDMP standards, and as an example of supplementary sources of data, we will also highlight the possible use of the Melclass database on the classification of medicines and their supply conditions (maintained by EDQM), as well as the ATC (and DDD) classification as maintained by the WHO-CC for Drugs Statistics Methodology. Join the discussion on how these different sources of data come together in a medicinal product dictionary! ​
