For the last several years, I have used OBSERVATION_CONCEPTs to convert weight and height information filled out by patients on mobile Health app. Those information can be filled manually or automatically synched with apple health app or android device. Since that information is coming from patients’ testimonial not from the measurement performed by medicals, at that moment, I thought that is has to be mapped different from the information written in EMR records.
Previously used concepts are;
However, the OBSERVATION_CONCEPTs used recently become non-standard and moved to MEASUREMENT domain, so I have to re-map patient-filled weight and height information.
In that case, there are two ways of mapping those information.
- Using the same MEASUREMENT_CONCEPT with EMR body weight and height data, but using different TYPE_CONCEPT_ID.
Weight: 3013762 | Body weight measured | LOINC
Height: 3036277 | Body height | LOINC
Using TYPE_CONCEPT_ID as 32865 (Patient self-report) for PGHD.
- Using totally different MEASUREMENT_CONCEPT_ID from EMR body weight and height data
Weight: 40765046 | PhenX - weight - self reported weight protocol 021502 | LOINC
Height: 40765044 | PhenX - self reported height protocol 020704 | LOINC
Which one seems to be better idea?
Hope many of you answer to my concern.
