Provider Specialty code set clean up


(Gowtham Rao) #21

No. It’s an idea. Would it be possible to use concept_synonym to maintain 1:n synonyms? If yes, then maybe we could work on it together.

(Christian Reich) #22

Yes, you can have as many synonyms as you want. Yes, let’s do that, but we should still roll out the current set of concepts if no other improvements are found.

@Christian_Reich @Dymshyts - here are some ideas for concept_synonym

(Gowtham Rao) #24

Regarding mappings: These mappings are already done by external sources, and we need to import them into OMOP. Some of these mappings are already in ATHENA may only need updating/validation for accuracy.

  • We can map NUCC to CMS specialty codes here
  • We can map CMS specialty codes to ABMS
  • We can map ABMS to NUCC

(Christian Reich) #25

Can you check the table against those resources?

(Anna Ostropolets) #26

Wait. I’m somehow lost. Haven’t we done that? I’m pretty sure that I actually mapped these things in order that we previously agreed on.

(Christian Reich) #27

I did it by hand on the fly. Needs to be checked. Right now, there are almost no “Maps to” links.

(Anna Ostropolets) #28

There aren’t many, right. And Gowtham’s links are already incorporated (or we’re missing the file).
