The Federal Medication Terminologies (FMT) is a set of controlled terminologies and code sets from component vocabulary systems developed and maintained by the Food and Drug Administration, National Library of Medicine, Veterans Health Administration, National Cancer Institute and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The National Cancer Institute component terminology within the FMT is the NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) and is pointed to within the External Code List publications for obtaining values for applicable data elements.
NCI has provided a link to subset files specific to the NCPDP standards usage. The subsets were created by NCI terminologists to provide smaller sets of concepts for ease of use. Subset files include (but are not limited to): Drug StrengthForm, StrengthUnitofMeasure, QuantityUnitOfMeasure, DEASchedule, MeasurementUnitCode, and DoseUnitOfMeasure Terminology.
