Concept for what?

Look: the concepts that are part of the OMOP Standardized Vocabularies are created by the Vocabulary Group. And only by them. If you need a concept let them know (e.g. here). If this is a local concept nobody else needs then you have any concept_id above 2 Billion available to you. Go wild. But don’t forget that these 2-billionaires are not visible to anybody, and therefore cannot be used in Network Research.
