Canadian Clinical Drug Data Set (CCDD) will soon include French content

Health Canada and Canada Health Infoway (Infoway) are pleased to announce that the Canadian Clinical Drug Data Set (CCDD) will soon be available with French descriptions and supporting documentation in French (such as the CCDD Technical Specification and Editorial Guidelines). The French descriptions were developed with advice and guidance from a Canadian French Advisory Group.

The CCDD provides a freely available common language for identifying medications in digital health solutions, resulting in a national drug terminology solution that allows PrescribeIT® and other digital health solutions to share information about drug products and groups of drug products with otherwise incompatible proprietary systems used in electronic medical records, pharmacy management, and provincial drug information systems.
