Good evening OHDSI! A thought came to my mind and wanted to get the community’s input…
- OHDSI analysis is centered around the construct of a cohort made of a population of subject’s. Subject_id’s are almost always person_id’s. Has anyone performed an analysis where subject_id is a provider_id? If not performed, is there an interest for such use cases @Patrick_Ryan asked this question here
- Could you please share if you have access to identifiable provider information such as NPI https://npiregistry.cms.hhs.gov/ in USA. i.e. if you have claims or EHR data, do you have identifiable provider information in the data.
- Is there an interest for OHDSI community to maintain provider_id composed of NPI or some international id’s - similar to how we maintain vocabularies. e.g. data from this link may somehow be part of OMOP vocabulary like system, maybe OMOP provider ‘registry’.
