One colleague shared an article on the "Medical_Translation" list, which announces that a major pharma manufacturer has decided to provide public access to a big healthcare data dictionary, called "HDD Access".

I have visited the HDD Access, and I must say that, even in the present state, i.e. web-based only, it is a great promising tool.

It is primarily useful to find all existing (English) synonyms for conditions, syndromes, signs and symptoms, etc, and developments of abbreviations. It will be of a great help to us, given the authors creativity in this aspecticon_smile.gif

The "Overview" page is here :

The "Introduction" here :

The" Instructions for use" here :

Enjoy it.

PS: the article I mentioned above is here :
