There's basically three things one wants to do with drug data:

1) access textual information for reference and information
   purposes via a drug browser

2) access detailed, programmatic information for decision
   support via program logic

3) store/retrieve information about drugs associated
   with a patient

- All three can have separate (but uniform across sources) APIs.
- 1) and 2) can share the same API.
- 1) and 2) can share the same data source.
- 3) should be stored in a data repository (say, the GnuMed
  "historica" service) separate from 1) and 2).
- the allergies tables/code gives some hint towards 3)
- drugref is likely to deliver 2)
- the MIMS/AMIS stuff lends itself well to 1)
- 1) is needed

Keeping these issues cleanly separated in the domain model is
key to timely progress, I dare believe.

PS: Christian, dies könnten vielleicht lohnende Themen für
weitere Diplomanden bei Res Medicinae sein ?
