Subject Re: ctakes not capturing all meds/rxnorm IDs

In the logs, do you see something like "Filtered out xyz"?
I think the default configuration has a OrangeBook Filter consumer
applied.  That is only RxNorm concepts that also exist in the
OrangeBook are returned.  I'm not sure if this is causing some of your
drugs to be missed, but worth taking out OrangeBook filter out to
We should probably default all RxNorm to be returned and make the
OrangeBook filter optional in the future release.
