As a part of our project to code our Food Allergy Data Dictionary in OMOP. I am interested in knowing how behavioral prescriptions are handled in the OMOP vocabulary.
I find myself needing to store these concepts relating to avoiding known food allergy triggers:
“Strict avoidance of Food” - this needs the ability to also store the food in question
“Avoid Food at home” - again with the food in question
Also when it comes to a patient being prescribed an EPI Pen I would need to be able to record the following:
- Carries Epinephrine Injector
- Demonstrated Correct Epinephrine administration technique
- Food Allergy Counseling Received
The Epinephrine concepts are requested by our panel of food allergy experts as they are interested in tracking not just if a person is prescribed Epinephrine, but also if they are carrying and able to use an epi pen.
