Hi! Does anyone have a recommendation on how to best represent “long term care facility” with a omop standard concept in the context of a person who is currently living at a long term care facility. Initially, I thought it was straightforward to use SNOMED’s “Long term care facility” concept but when in the omop vocabulary, it is considered non-standard so I wanted to take a step back and get more feedback from the community if anyone has thoughts. Thank you very much!
I would use concept_id = 37109035, Long term custodial care facility patient. It is a standard concept in the Observation domain.
This fact is supposed to be a record in the VISIT_OCCURRENCE table. So how about mapping to the following concepts in Visit Domain?
To add to @Alexdavv reply:
If you have a start and end date for the Person’s stay at the Long Term Care Facility, then you would add this as a Visit record in the CDM.
If you have the fact a Person lives/stays at a Long Term Care Facility, then you have an Observation record for the CDM.
Very helpful. Thank you both!
