For measurement entity there are multiple vocabularies for measurement code and unit data like snomed,loinc. Which vocabulary should be considered as OMOP github page does not mention any specific vocabulary for measurement.


Cerner Units Mapping to Concept Table
(Vojtech Huser) #2

I will only reply to the unit aspect

For unit data - use UCUM.
See ThemisConcepts folder in https://github.com/OHDSI/OhdsiStudies
(this links to a user repo).

See units is this rather complex file below
(only look at column unit_concept_id to keep your life simple)
(another simple column is n = number of sites using this lab-unit pair)
