Exclusive WHO Drug Versioning Tools
Our proprietary thesaurus system contains innovative WHO Drug versioning tools that enable us to quickly and precisely pinpoint those reported terms that need to be re-coded as a result of the new version.
First, we identify and re-code those reported terms coded to a WHO Drug entry which has subsequently been deleted from the new version.
We then identify and re-code those reported terms for which a newly added entry is a better choice than what was previously available. We accomplish this, however, without the need to evaluate every reported term. Checking every reported term would be extremely laborious and costly, equivalent to a complete re-coding.
Instead, our expert coders use our exclusive versioning tools to apply a top-down process where we take each new drug entry and then identify exactly those reported terms that should be re-coded to that new entry. Our versioning tools contain a powerful search capability that enables us to quickly and accurately pinpoint these reported terms.
