Implementing WHODrug Koda - for vendors

WHODrug Koda can be easily integrated in a coding tool via an application programming interface (API).

WHODrug Koda is a coding engine that can be conveniently connected to your coding software systems via a REST-based HTTP API. WHODrug Koda is developed and maintained by UMC and comes with a unique combination of artificial intelligence by machine learning, thorough and continuous training of the engine, and UMC’s unrivalled WHODrug expertise. The combination of such features makes it possible for WHODrug Koda to automatically code a verbatim to a drug name in the WHODrug Global dictionary and also to select the most appropriate ATC code.
