Is visit_occurrence / visit_detail, discharge_to_concept_id. in the right arena for mapping patient referrals (e.g. to specialist) within the OMOP CDM? Or is this intended primarily (and/or only) for discharge when a patient leaves the hospital by check out process or deceased, AWOL, etc. ? I found some good discussion here
re: granularity of visits, but so far haven’t come across details on where to map/store referral information, if there’s a place.
Was this excluded intentionally from an observational health/sciences perspective ? i.e. given the limited / specialist scope of the OMOP CDM ?
