Standardised vocabulary depression

(Shane O'Connor) #1

Hi all,

I’m planning to leverage OHDSI to perform an analysis of the treatment-resistant depression (TRD) population in the US. Being new to the OHDSI community, I still have some basic questions about the vocabularies surrounding depression. Does the OMOP CDM standardize the results from patient-reported questionnaires such as MADRS and PHQ-6? Is it possible to compare clinical outcomes of patients whose EMRs are located in disparate databases that use different questionnaires?
