DEATH table--Multiple standard codes for under lying cause of death


(Anoop Yamsani) #1

Hello,

We are working on populating Death table in our environment for which we receive underlying death cause from our source as ICD 10 codes, when we do a mapping to SNOMED to get the standard concept codes, we find that some of the ICD 10 codes map to more than 1 SNOMED code under the same domain (Condition). Was wondering what the community does in these scenarios. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@anoop.yamsani:

This has been discussed in the Forum before right here. I’d ask those folks what they ended up deciding.
