OMOP Vocabulary Issue concept_code 'GQ'

This is one example (of several) of an issue that needs to be raised with OMOP vocabulary team.

Industry standard code ‘GQ’

  • Is a CPT and HCPCS modifier has the same meaning whether applied to a HCPCS or CPT code
  • Is assigned two difference OMOP concept ids in omop CONCEPT table
  • Is assigned to two different domains
  • Appears to be assigned to erroneous domains (seems that both concepts should be assigned either ‘Visit’ or ‘Observation’ domain - not ‘Device’ or ‘Meas Value’)

Hi, @wiggent. Vocabulary team knows about this problem and a more fundamental solution is planned for the modifiers. More detailed discussion of the proposed approaches you can see here.
