As one of the key OHDSI Vocabularies principles is support of OHDSI use case of evidence generation, there is a proposal to de-standardize several SNOMED classes that do not have direct connection with the patient healthcare experience and are no relevant to evidence generation.
Such classes include:
Attribute. Ex.: 385641008 Action status
Location (except countries). Ex.: 224869002 Adult education college
Physical force. Ex.: 285400005 Air pressure
Physical object. Ex.: 70224005 Bicycle
and the most controversial: Social context. Ex.: 9629004 Borderline poverty status
At the most recent meeting we agreed on 1-4 and decided to keep #5 as standard until we introduce something better for social context and SDOH.
I wonder if the Health Equity WG (@Jake) or others has some thoughts on potential targets for SDOH vocabulary.
Upd: linkage assertion remains standard
