Best practice when using cdm data

(Galit Aloni) #1

What Is the common practice of researchers when using the actual data – do they use the concept_id form or concept_code\concept_name form?

(Christian Reich) #2

What’s a “form”, @galita?

The standard concept is the representation of the fact any record in the OMOP CDM represents. Name and code are for convenience, and not used in research (unless as an exception for debugging or to entertain a specific local situation).
