Hello OHDSI experts,

I am trying to hack the gitHub of Voacbulary v5.0 under OHDSI github.
I was digging into Indications part. I was wondering what exactly this part means, and how we should load load the files in the zip folder to postgreSQL. Do you have any experiences with this part?

Thank you so much!

Best regards,

Hi Mariana,

Indication - is the name of one of the vocabularies.
If you’d like to download the vocabularies, try the Athena download page.

What do you need to know? We have two sources of indications: NDF-RT and ETC. The former is deprecated, the latter is proprietary. If you want to know the indication for a drug and find it in the CONDITION_OCCURRENCE table there have been numerous discussions about it. Let us know.

Thank you Christian! I will dig more into it, and will try to understand better! I was curious what kind of activity is going on for this “indication” folder :slight_smile:

Hello Alexander,

Thank you so much! I will try to look into the download page to download the vocabularies. Is there a variable that specifies that specific vocabs are for indications?

Thank you!
