The information about drugs is scattered among various resources and accessing it is hard for end users. In this paper we present an application called Drug Encyclopedia which is built on the top of the data mart represented as Linked Data and enables physicians to search and browse clinically relevant information about medicinal products and drugs. The application has been running for more than a year and has attracted many users. We describe the development driven by requirements, data mart creation, application evaluation and discuss the lessons learned.
