We are currently trying to map our diagnosis codes to the OMOP CDM standard. While majority of our source terms had a relevant mapping in Athena, I would like to specifically check with you on the below terms
Medical care, unspecified Examination and observation for an unspecified reason (Z04. 9) Person awaiting admission to other health care facility (Z75.1) Unspecified Reason For Consultation (V65.9) Other Reasons For Seeking Consultation (V65.8)
I have few questions wrt the terms shown above
a) While I find these terms under our raw diagnosis data, I feel they don’t really indicate patients’ problems/symptoms/conditions. However, they have a corresponding ICD code for them. So, should they still go into the condition_occurrence table in OMOP CDM?
b) I don’t find any matching concepts for these terms in Athena under “Condition” domain. I look for condition domain because the raw data is from diagnosis domain…
c) I also checked in other domains such as observation but no luck. So, we have currently mapped it to zero. Moreover, they occur very rarely in our data. (less than 50 records)… But would like to understand the process/procedure.
