Errors in drug concepts?

(Gerald Pulver) #1

It appears that some of the strengths given for lozenges may be inaccurate. Who, if anyone, should I inform?

Hello Gerald Pulver!

Thank you for highlighting this issue. You came to the right place with this question. We are going to investigate this case and update these concepts during the next RxNorm Extension release.

Hi Daryna-
I have a more long term set of questions that I hope you can help with. I work with Gerry and his drug findings came from the same overall project. For a large NIH project we are mapping multiple standardized instruments into OMOP for an Early Psychosis network. The project invovles 8 data hubs and perhaps 60 to 80 data providing sites for NIMH. A few of the instruments have the total score mapped to OMOP but virtually none of the currently exist at the item level in any of the ontologies that we can find in OMOP. In the long run it would be great to have the instruments in the NIH CDE repository and since our group is 100% OMOP adding them to the OMOP specific ontology makes the most sense to us. So two questions to start with:
What is the best way to advance this conversation?
A few of the instruments are copyrighted - we have a license for use - but do you generally stay away from adding these types of instruments to the overall OMOP terminology database?

Hi @Wilson_Pace

  • Please start a new forum topic. It would be good if you put some exact examples of concepts missing in OMOP which should be added.
  • Join the Psychiatry Working Group, where you can share your problem, and we can come up with the decision. Please contact @shilparatwani so she can invite you.

If there are a lot of organizations using this terminology, we publish the vocabulary on Athena as licence restricted, but if you have this licence, you can download it with your vocabulary batch. And to do so, the OHDSI vocabulary team should obtain the licence as well.

Actually, here’s the working group list
and you can see there
Psychiatry WG: Thursday, March 18 at 8 am ET: (Meeting Link)
Meetings are traditionally scheduled for every other Thursday at 8 am ET.

We encourage you not only to share your issues but also share the information about this project.

that sounds exacty what a Psych workgroup is interested in and can help with.
