In a project we are standardizing data in which we have measurements of a single variable obtained by different methods e.g.:
1)Heart rate, smartwatch measurement
2)Heart rate, measured by medical professional
3)Heart rate, pulse oximeter
How we should proceed we the standardization?
One way could be to store all values (1,2,3) under the same concept.
Another would be to store them under unique concepts, which will have to be added to OMOP vocabularies through community contributions.
Are there any guidelines on this issues? Any widely accepted and applied way to proceed?
We welcome your suggestions and opinions
