COVID-19 PCR vs Serology Codes


(Karthik) #1

I should know this but are there omop parent codes if one wants to only look at serology vs pcr tests? I was thinking these two parent codes, but wanted to get other’s thoughts:

PCR - https://athena.ohdsi.org/search-terms/terms/586310
Serology - https://athena.ohdsi.org/search-terms/terms/37310258

The 1st one picks both PCR and sequencing tests.
If you need it being more specific, just move one level down:

Thanks @Alexdavv!

Karthik, there are other antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2 which are not PCR or sequencing tests which fall under a different concept. Note that LOINC 95209-3 is not a PCR test.https://athena.ohdsi.org/search-terms/terms/37310257 is the parent.
