We want to build a python package to do batch translations from one vocabulary to another using OMOP vocabulary resources. This open-source tool could help those who want to federate databases.
The package requires standardized vocabulary files downloaded from the OHDSI website:
We wondered about the most suitable option to access and use the dictionaries.
- Is there an API to select and download desired vocabularies?
- Are the links generated and provided after requesting dictionaries persistent?
- In case the two previous options are not available, would you mind if we host the dictionary with all dictionaries on PhysioNet or GitHub?
