VA Drug Class and Product identifiers

vocabularies

(Liz Hanchrow) #1

Hi OHDSI,
My understanding is VA drug class and/or product codes were made non standard… I see someone else asked about the reason for this but I didn’t see a response. Why is this vocabulary no longer supported or in our vocabulary updates?. I work with VA’s OMOP drug mapping team and any new VUIDs are no longer mapping.

Thanks,
Liz Hanchrow RN

@Liz_Hanchrow:

Because they are no longer updated. It’s a pity. We liked them a lot. But they are now overtaken by MED-RT. Let me know if that is incorrect.
