Maps to vs. Maps to Value; single concept split into two

We noticed concept 4172372 Remission phase [Measure Value] {Qualifier Value} Snomed has a “Maps to” relationship to concepts but is in the “Meas Value” domain. The conditions and disorders are a “Maps to”.

This affects multiple condition concepts that were updated and split into two.

Now Non-Standard:
alcohol use, unspecified, in remission
cocaine use, unspecified, in remission
cannabis use, unspecified, in remission
other stimulant use, unspecified, in remission
opioid use, unspecified, in remission

Is this correct or is an update needed?
Thank you, Tina

Hello, @Tina_French

Thank you for your question.
Yes, this requires fixing. Meas Value concepts should be moved back to the Observation domain.
Provided mappings also should be fixed as Qualifier Value concepts don’t carry the semantics of clinical events and we should not use them to map conditions.
Unless these fixes are implemented I would propose you use concepts from the hierarchy of Disorders in remission to map these non-standard concepts.


Hi @m-khitrun,
Thank you for responding so promptly. I wanted to clarify, the mappings you see at the bottom of my message are the new standard concepts for these conditions after the last vocab update. When you say “they need to be fixed”- is this something OHDSI will do? Our ETL expert, Katherine Simon, created a chart that outlines the issue very well- I have attached it. Please let me know if I need to provide additional information. Thanks again, Tina

Hi, @Tina_French

Thank you for the chart provided.

Yes, our Vocabulary Team should deprecate these erroneous mappings and remap the mentioned ICD10CM concepts to the proper targets. We expect these fixes to be implemented during the nearest release.

Kind regards,
