It includes sample applications built on Oracle’s Java platform and built on the Microsoft .NET Framework that demonstrate importing and using reference sets.

This document provides guidance for healthcare software systems that produce and consume clinical messages containing medical nomenclatures.  This guidance helps software developers to manage risks when developing healthcare software systems using medical nomenclatures for the purpose of supporting healthcare delivery through the exchange of clinical information.
