The core driver of IDMP is to provide a common identification for drugs that can be referenced in Individual Case Safety Reports. The five ISO standards that make up IDMP create building blocks for storing product information and data; standardizing how routes of administration, dosage forms, and units are described; building in detail on active and inactive substances, and from there into pharmaceutical products (how things are consumed) into packaged products (how things are sold).
In 2012, five new ISO standards were approved to ensure unique identification of medicinal products and exchange between industry and authorities
- ISO11615:2012 Health Informatics – Identification of medicinal products – Data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of regulated medicinal product information
- ISO11616:2012 Health informatics – Identification of medicinal products – Data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of regulated pharmaceutical product information
- ISO11238:2012 Health Informatics — Identification of medicinal products – Data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of regulated information on substances
- ISO11239:2012 Health Informatics — Identification of medicinal products — Data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of regulated information on pharmaceutical dose forms, units of presentation, routes of administration and packaging
- ISO11240:2012 Health Informatics — Identification of medicinal products – Data elements and structures for the unique identification and exchange of units of measurement
- Adverse Events and drug interaction cases continuing to rise
- Multiple Concomitant Medications taken by patients (1/3 of Americans over 65 take 5 or more drugs)
- Claims of 700,000 Emergency Room visits 100,000 Hospitalizations (AHRQ PSNet)
- Over 100,000 drug related deaths in U.S.
- 197,000 deaths due to ADRs in Europe
