Healthbase Australia has updated the online Australian Medicines Terminology browser to include the 2.19 version of the AMT released by NEHTA today.
All deprecated versions are still available for browsing/searching.
This upgrade no longer detects and flags both erroneous concepts, and retired descriptions, as described in the NEHTA Release note. Deprecated versions 2.17 and 2.18 only will perform these check, and therefore will be slower.
Pity the download process still cannot be automated. Perhaps if this were the 1980s NEHTA could publish the updates (with sensible filenames!) via an FTP service. I guess we have a lot of catching up to do! Maybe we will just have to keep waiting another couple of years until a cumbersome Web service is established?
