1st IDMP Wiki


How to use the first IDMP Wiki

This one-stop IDMP Wiki gives you the chance of interacting with stakeholders involved in IDMP and of looking up all IDMP related content, abbrevations and information. This Wiki is a wiki-based online project supported by the IDMP1 GmbH. Its aim is to create a comprehensive free content catalogue of all abbreviations, terms, ISO Standards and knowledge needed in IDMP. It aims to build one “infinitely expandable” page for each specific aspect in IDMP  , including video, sound, images, graphics, as well as text. It is directed at all stakeholder in IDMP projects (such as scientists / specialists in encoding, marketing authorisation holders, contract research organisations etc.) rather than at the general public.

Ursula Tschorn – chairwoman of the IDMP1 Wiki is member of the EU IDMP Task Force and is involved in the development of the ISO IDMP Standard and especially in the IDMP Roadmap of the EMA to comply with the IDMP´s requirements.

ADR is short for Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR)



In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. An API expresses a software component in terms of its operations, inputs, outputs, and underlying types. An API defines functionalities that are independent of their respective implementations, which allows definitions and implementations to vary without compromising the interface. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks. A programmer then puts the blocks together.
