WHODrug Change Analysis Tool (CAT)

CAT enables users to analyse the impact of data changes from one version of WHODrug to another.

The WHODrug Change Analysis Tool (CAT) facilitates up-versioning of WHODrug. This web-based tool will give the user a complete, clear and easy-to-understand overview of dictionary changes, displayed in straightforward detail, record by record. A summary of the data-changes is provided, facilitating internal communication and understanding of the impact of the process of creating a new version.

A visual summary provides an overview of what impact a forthcoming WHODrug version will have, simplifying data-change analysis. Users can see an overview of all changes made between two versions, or upload company specific data and synonym lists, and receive changes affecting specific data only.

A simple and reliable data impact analysis, WHODrug CAT offers the possibility to upload specific data and review specific changes that have taken place in each version, making the impact-evaluation process even easier.

Key features

  • From March 2017, users will be able to compare a version of the B2-format with the same or a later B3-format release and to view all modifications and deletions between the selected versions.
  • To support the upversioning process further, a text file containing the corresponding B2 and B3 Drug Codes will also be available for WHODrug versions from 2015 and onwards.
