Why am I receiving a message that I need an account with Unified Medical Language System when I try to add a new Implantable Device to a patient’s chart?

Office Practicum accesses Implantable Device information using a program created by the U.S. National Library of Medicine called AccessGUDID.  The National Library of Medicine requires an individual from each practice to obtain a free Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) Metathesaurus License and create an UMLS Terminology Services (UTS) account before they can access AccessGUDID through their EHR vendor.

If you have already acquired these credentials and receive this message, it means the credentials have been entered incorrectly into the Correspondent record or have not been entered at all. Review the UMLS National Library of Medicine Correspondent record to troubleshoot this issue.
