MedDRA Analyzer & WHO-Drug Analyzer


XCT Analyzer module provides Version Management and Analysis of existing safety data that has been coded. The module can identify coding errors and inconsistencies, move coding between dictionary versions and validate existing coding datasets and synonym histories after each dictionary upgrade, for both MedDRA and WHO-Drug dictionaries.

The Version Management function allows the analysis of a coding set in all versions of a dictionary. It can identify all correct codes and those which, MAY require re-coding as well as those that HAVE to be recoded. It will identify codes that no longer exist, those that have been changed in some way, those who have a related hierarchical change or where a multi-axial change has had an impact. Primary and secondary changes are identified as well as changes in the current status of the code.

A comprehensive history report for the term can be built based upon all available versions of the dictionary terminology - see an example here. So for example the WHO-Drug term NALGESIN first appeared in the available dictionary 2007 Q4 B2 but was not available in our clients previous dictionary of 2004 Q4, however the current coding with the specified ATC was not introduced until the dictionary 2011 Q4 B2. (In this example the client does not have a complete timeline of dictionaries available in their license suite)

Data Mining for adverse events is achieved by being able to create any Special Search Category (SSC) for MedDRA. This SSC can then be combined with patient biometrics to produce a Defined Search Category (DSC). This then allows you to say, for example to find all occurrences of a disorders that include this list of PTs, but exclude this list of LLTs that may also occur with this list of LLTs and PTs for a chosen group. Even if the safety data set only contains SOC and PT the system can fill in the gaps and allow queries involving HLT and HLGTs. A similar approach can be taken with WHO-Drug.


Medical Coding Analyzer Features & Benefits


Analyzer Features Benefits to the User
Identify coding errors and inconsistencies: Instant analysis of current terms against a new dictionary version, synonym dictionary or within the dataset.
Validate existing coding datasets and synonym histories after each dictionary upgrade: New dictionary versions can be implemented quickly and seamlessly with existing dataset with minimum effort.

Allows the analysis of a coding set against any version of a dictionary (past or present):
Creates an instant analysis of your data, identifying all coding areas by error.
Create any Special Search Category (SSC) for MedDRA: Detailed search options allow you to create accurate search criteria which are relevant to your dataset and area of research.
Multiple dictionary versions of the same dictionary type searched simultaneously: Saves time cross-referencing different version of the dictionaries.
Supports multiple dictionary types and terminologies: MedDRA, ICD9, ICD9-CM, ICD10, COSTART, WHO-ART and WHO-Drug.
Import & Export from any text file, Excel spreadsheet, Access database, other databases (SyBase, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL) or other electronic source: Ease of import and export to many sources allows great flexibility. For more specialized or closed systems a comprehensive API is available to enable integration.
Integrates with Microsoft Office (Access Excel etc): For easy integration into clients business processes.
