Healthbase Australia has updated the online Australian Medicines Terminology browser to the 2.16 version released by NEHTA today.
AMT Browser (Healthbase Australia). All deprecated versions are still available for browsing/searching.
This upgrade now also detects and flags both erroneous concepts, and retired descriptions, as described in the NEHTA Release note. Deprecated versions will not be checked, and therefore will be faster.
Pity the download process cannot be automated. Perhaps if this were the 1980s NEHTA could publish the updates (with sensible filenames!) via an FTP service. I guess e-health has a lot of catching up to do! Maybe we will just wait a couple of years until a Web service is established?
