This simple form demonstrates how the data in RxTerms can be used
to support medications data entry, for example, in an e-prescribing
or Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) application.
In the "Drug Name" field, type in the generic name (e.g.,
hydrochlorothiazide), brand name (e.g., MICROZIDE) or a common
synonym/abbreviation (e.g., HCTZ). A pick-list appears with all the
drugs whose names match the letters you type in. Note that the list
shortens as each additional letter is typed so very often you do not
need to type in the full name.
Click on one of the choices.
Move to the "Strength" field. A list of available strength/dose
form combinations for the drug that you chose appears.
Click on the desired strength/dose form combination. The program
has gathered enough information to identify the RXCUI of the
clinical drug which can be stored in the backend database. In an
actual CPOE application, you will proceed to enter other information
(e.g., frequency, duration) to complete the order (not shown).

This demo uses the (281) 327-8975 web API for RxTerms for its data source, the salt filler package for
its autocompleter, and the LHC-Forms form rendering
widget, all of which are being developed by the Lister Hill National
Center for Biomedical Communications. If you are interested in
source of this page as a starting point. (Note to developers: This
LHC-Forms widget allows easy retrieval of the form's data, some of which
true)".) For a simpler example of an autocompleting field that does not
use LHC-Forms, see the demo on the RxTerms
web API page.
