Rxnorm Files for Vista/RPMS

Welcome to the homepage for the Rxnorm Vista Support. I am Sam Habiel, and I am the developer for these packages. I can be reached at sam dot habiel at gmail dot com.

What is Rxnorm?

Rxnorm is a standardized vocabulary set for Drugs in the United States. The goal of Rxnorm is drug nomenclature standardization and systems interoperability. More information on Rxnorm can be found at

How can I install Rxnorm on VISTA?

Download and untar/ungzip this file: source:ccr/trunk/rxnorm/C0CRXN0_1.k.tgz. This gives you a kids file (.k) which you can then install in VISTA or RPMS. Right now, Installation takes about 45 minutes, though I hope to cut this down in future releases. An install transcript can be found on this page: RxNormInstallTranscript
