Seems like the number of possible standard concepts with domain_id = ‘Route’ drops from 70 to 22 from vocabulary v5.0 17-JUL-15 to v5.0 11-MAR-16. I do see that some duplicates have been changed (like for rectal) from standard_concept=‘S’ to not standard anymore, but there are some very important ones that are now missing with no clear replacements, here is my list:
4263689 | Cutaneous
4186834 | Gastroenteral
4184451 | Ocular
… and a few more.
Is this a mistake? seems like it since now we can’t have drugs with Ocular or Cutaneous routes?
On a side note, there are two concepts that the string is marked as obsolete, but they are not deprecated and still standard:
45956873 | Obsolete-Oromucosal other
45956876 | Obsolete-Intraventricular
Since they haven’t been been deprecated, is there an automatic way in the vocabulary to check for these type of changes? or should I have to check my mapping tables by hand each time I upgrade vocabularies?
