Quite often, the question is being raised by the customers on why they are not being upgraded to OMOP version 6. I can also see that this same question is being raised quite often by many OHDSI newcomers. A lot of companies without previous OMOP knowledge and background make an honest mistake and convert their data to v6 instead of supported v5.4 which then results in additional effort of downgrading.
Question - why do we keep confusing people/community and ourselves? Why can’t we recognize that the OMOP v6 - at least in it’s current design (famous mandatory datetime stamp that no one really needs/likes - is not really adoptable and officially put it on ice? Great experiment and grand ideas but didn’t work. Sure, many of these ideas can be brought into CDM in a slightly another form, many actually already in v.5.4
Can we please consider removing OMOP CDM v6 pages from our WIKI to stop confusing people who still think that OMOP CDM v6 is about to be released (5 years after it was actually released)? Or move it to another location aka OHDSI museum :).
Your thoughts on this are welcome
