I’m maping EHR from Finland to CDM. There is a code system specific from this country. Namely drug reimbursemen code.
When a patient expends a set amount of money in purchasing drugs they get a reimbuirsemen and this is marked in the EHR with a code indicating the type of disease/medicine group.
The coding has a two level herarchy, a piece of this coding is showed next
103 - Diabetes, Insulin Treatment
- 171 - Insulin degludec (limited special reimbursement)
- 177 - Insulin glargine 300U / ml (special allowance limited)
- 215 - Diabetes Other than Insulin Treatment
137 - Uremia requiring dialysis
123 - Chronic Vitamin D Disorders
This seems a very specific system.
I have two questions:
A) Is there an existing standard vocabulary to map this coding ??
B) If not, could I create a vocabulary the includes this codes and marke it as Standard, so that I can use it in my implementation of Atlast ? (I think atlast does not work if i try to use the non-standard codes)
C) Is there any other way ??
