WHODrug Koda – the coding engine

WHODrug Koda is an automated coding service custom-built by UMC. The service is specifically designed for increasing the efficiency, consistency and quality of drug coding, with the end goal of safer use of medicines.

UMC recognizes that the vital activity of drug coding can be both challenging and time consuming. The ever-expanding number of drugs available on the global market will increase the need for automated services for drug coding. We are therefore delighted to announce the introduction of a new automated coding engine: WHODrug Koda.
