  1. Resource Description
    "One of the most time-consuming tasks within the drug development process is classifying verbatim terms to permit deriving standard medical and drug terms for use in analysis from the free text originally captured. The Oracle Thesaurus Management System (TMS) streamlines this critical and costly task by providing a centralized, globally available repository of dictionary terms and associated verbatim terms. Information in the repository is accessible through advanced searching and classification algorithms. TMS supports all dictionaries required by international regulatory authorities. Additionally, TMS can support and integrate with company/organization-specific dictionaries and legacy applications. The result is a global facility to standardize terminology use across dictionaries, computer applications, time, and organizations. Oracle Thesaurus Management System addresses the complexities associated with managing global thesauri. Designed to manage and classify free text captured during the drug development process, TMS meets the needs of multinational pharmaceutical, biotechnical and medical device companies, contract research organizations, academic institutions and regulatory authorities by providing a worldwide, scalable terminology repository. Within the Oracle OLS application suite, TMS provides terminology services for Oracle Clinical, Oracle RDC, Oracle AERS and Oracle Life Sciences Data Hub."
