Since 1997, EVS has worked with many partners to build shared content and services, so that information can be effectively exchanged, interpreted and analyzed while minimizing overall effort and cost. Much of this content has been created and published using NCI Thesaurus and NCI Metathesaurus, as outlined below and described in more detail in the individual user profiles later, where other shared development efforts are also described.

NCI Thesaurus (NCIt)
NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) is NCI's core reference terminology. Over the last 10 years, it has also been adopted by FDA, CDISC, NCPDP and other partners as a shared standards development and coding environment, allowing participants to compare and harmonize with each other's content while taking advantage of full-text definitions, codes, and other features.
