Brief History<br />In 2001, National Library of Medicine (NLM) began experimenting in modeling drugs in the Unified Medical Language System.<br />The area clinical drugs was seen important in the growing issue of patient safety.<br />Aim was to develop improved interoperability of drug terminology.<br />RxNorm is a standardized nomenclature for clinical drugs produced by the NLM. <br />The RxNorm project approached clinical representation in a number of steps.<br />
  • 3. Brief History <br />The initial effort was to define Semantic Normal Form (SNF) to represent clinical drugs.<br />SNF’s are canonical representations as defined by their strengths, active ingredients and orderable dosage form.<br />There are two SNF’s created for every clinical drug:<br />http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/rxnorm/history.html<br />UMLS Basics:<br />http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/online_learning/glossary.htm<br />
