Given multiple debates over Condition vs Observation vs Measurement in the community, the Vocabulary Team has proposed to use SNOMED tags to assign domains in these gray areas.
Here’s a snapshot of the presentation.
For example, both Hemoglobin low and Anemia were Conditions. In proposal, we use tags to assign them different concept_class_id, which leads to Anemia staying in Condition domain and Hemoglobin low moving to Measurement domain (and being post-coordinated).

is the table with full delta (old domains and new proposed domains). Please check it out and comment here/come to the Vocab WG next Tuesday for further discussion.
