Could someone help with this question - whether it would be possible to curate surveillance /VE variables for infectious diseases (e.g. influenza, Covid-19) in SNOMED CT, and then use them in OMOP CDM?
I guess there’s a few things happening here:
Does SNOMED CT already have these variables or do they need curating? If not, why not? Can this be added?
Would it be possible to map them to OMOP CDM? If not currently possible, how would one go about this process?
Apologies for being slightly vague - I’m looking for any info - literature, links etc. We are mapping to OMOP CDM, but would love to run a study related to these variables, so was wondering what is possible and what are the processes. Apologies also for not being a clinician familiar with SNOMED CT, but a data analyst.
