We discovered that some of the drugs in our EMR system, that uses FDB genseqno coding, are not present in the concept table. I thought initially that we have an outdated vocabularies, but it is not present in the latest dataset (GCN_SEQNO 20151119 Release), and at least one of the drugs (Cinqair) was approved in 2016.
We need to ultimately map the drugs to RxNorm concepts, so we were using GCN_SEQNO concepts and concept_relationship table to do the mapping. So a couple of questions:
- Are there up-to-date FDB concepts available?
- Is this a right approach?
