Medical Terminologies for Python: SNOMED CT, ICD10, MedDRA, CDF, UMLS and VCM icons

Project Description

PyMedTermino (Medical Terminologies for Python) is a Python module for easy access to the main medical terminologies in Python. The following terminologies are available: SNOMED CT, ICD10, MedDRA, CDF, UMLS, VCM icons (an iconic terminology developped at Paris 13 University).

PyMedTermino has been created at the LIMICS reseach lab, University Paris 13, Sorbonne Paris Cité, INSERM UMRS 1142, Paris 6 University, by Jean-Baptiste Lamy. PyMedTermino is available under the GNU LGPL licence.

In case of trouble, please contact Jean-Baptiste Lamy <jean-baptiste.lamy @ univ-paris13 . fr>

>>> SNOMEDCT[3424008] >> VCM   # Maps the SNOMED CT concept to VCM icon

PyMedTermino can also be used without Python, just for converting SNOMED CT and ICD10 XML data into SQL databases.
