New vocabulary has lower number of concepts and 'Maps to' relationships

@Dymshyts @aostropolets @Christian_Reich

Just wanted to double-check something with you guys. I downloaded the latest vocab (17-JUN-19), and noticed some of the ‘Maps to’ relationships have been dropped from the previous version:

SOURCE_VOCABULARY_ID COUNT
NDC 175
RxNorm 89
VA Product 31
Multum 29
SPL 4
SNOMED 3
MeSH 1

My main concern is about NDCs. Have been there any changes in the mapping process?

I’m assuming that the reason for that is RxNorm concepts deprecation. This is the only reason why ‘Maps to’ gets deprecated without a replacement. You are as usual welcome to create a Github issue if there is something important not mapped :slight_smile:

Thanks @aostropolets! I could only find one scenario:
Both NDC and target RxNorm concepts exist but the relationships are missing; I will submit them to GH repo.

Thanks!
