Good news! Vigilance Santé has now integrated the new Canadian Clinical Drug Data Set (CCDD) codes developed by Canada Health Infoway into its databases. Correspondences have thus been established between the TM and NTP codes from the CCDD and the DINs, GENcodes and generx codes from Vigilance. These codes can now be sent to the analysis engine in an input element that accepts a GEN-code or a generx code; simply add the suffix "/ ntp or / tm" after the code.
