2014 SPL/DailyMed Jamboree Workshop
Using DailyMed Drug Product Label Data
NLM is sponsoring a free public meeting, “SPL/DailyMed Jamboree 2014 Workshop – Practical use of DailyMed and RxNorm Drug Data”. Speakers from Federal government (NLM and IHS), industry (Bayer, Wolters-Kluwer), academia and non-profit sectors will speak on their experience with Structured Product Label (SPL) drug data as well as RxNorm. The emphasis is on practical and novel ways to use this free data, which is produced cooperatively by NLM and FDA. Last year’s Jamboree was a big success, and this year we build on that, offering more focus on applications, implementation and lessons learned.
Topics include SPLs and clinical decision support, extracting indication and drug interaction data from SPLs using natural language processing, e-prescribing experience within the Indian Health Service, Linked Data and SPLs, the use of RxNorm by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and more.
Please reserve the day and time in your calendar. Registration is required, and seating is limited. While the proceedings will be webcast and archived, in-person attendance offers greater opportunity to exchange ideas, questions and insights with your peers.
