FreeDiams seems to share some ideas with drugref. Access to more then one drug 
source and exposing features through some interface. The concepts are not yet 
identical nor developed. FreeDiams could become Drugref like but the author 
said it is a lot of work. We encourage that work.

The code and language is less important. FreeDiams uses C++/sqlite and QT 
instead of php. The user interface is of minor concern for us as we do not yet 
want to prescribe drugs but store information on prescribed drugs. That way we 
are more interested in any interface to access drug information then putting 
it on paper or the like.

See above. There is the prescription side and there is the data access only
