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?

v0.01: 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. The data corresponds to RxNorm October 2009. v0.02: I am currently working on this.

Contents of the KIDS file

  • RXNORM CONCEPTS (176.001) corresponding to free content in RXNCONSO.RRF
  • RXNORM NDC TO RXCUI (176.002) corresponding to the NDC/RXNORM subset of RXNSAT.RRF
