GNUmed introduces data packs

Data packs are GNUmed's way to make available a wide variety of reference data on an as-needed, on-demand basis. By such means,

* there is no need to pre-load the GNUmed database with potentially-unwanted reference information
* downloads can be reduced in size
* easy one-step installation and updates, via GNUmed menu, which any GNUmed praxis administrator (armed with the gm-dbo password) can do

Currently-available data packs can

* install Canadian drug brands and their ingredients and populate the vaccines table
* fill in missing Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) classification codes for drug names which match the INN names or mapped synonyms
* modify the (upper / lower) case of drug names using the TALLman system of better-distinguishing sound-alike drugs
* hosted here: [[][data packs]]

Have fun.
