Abstract: 

The National Drug File Reference Terminology1 (NDF-RT) is a resource developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration, as an extension of the VA National Drug File. NDF-RT provides a formal content model that describes and defines medications by naming relevant concepts via preferred and syn-onymous terms, and describing them via named relations to other terminology concepts, either within NDF-RT or in external terminologies. In other words, NDF-RT is not only terminology, but a source of clinical information, in-cluding therapeutic intent (atorvastatin may_treat Hypercholesterolemia), mechanism of action (atorvastatin has_MoA Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA Reductase Inhibitors), physiologic effect (atorvastatin has_PE Decreased Cholesterol Synthesis) and drug-drug interactions (e.g., critical interaction between atorvastatin and ketokonazole).An Application Programming Interface for NDF-RTAn Application Programming Interface for NDF-RTAn Application Programming Interface for NDF-RTAn application programming interface for NDF-RT
