Universal Codes are here!


mSupply has published a Universal Code server of its own so we are now able to:

  • Code items on their generic name, not their trade name (good-bye GTINs etc..)
  • Code items based on their strength and dosage formulation (good-bye UNSPC)
  • Not include the pack size (good-bye UPC Search) as we want to aggregate data across pack sizes
  • Have a freely available API so that applications can obtain codes as needed.

We intend to expand this service to also include

  • Reference pricing
  • Defined daily doses and DDD factors,
  • WHO EML categories
  • Medicine interactions
