Value Sets as an OHDSI supported vocabulary

(David Kendrick) #1

I am working with a large HIE to ingest many terabytes of clinical and claims data into the CDM. The code normalization power of the vocabulary + Usagi is incredible. However, we also perform electronic clinical quality measures (eCQM’s) and other measures that rely on curated Value Sets of standard terminologies to indicate concepts. The Value Set Authority Center at NLM is a great resource for these Value Sets. My question is this:
When mapping many thousands of codes it would be ideal to prioritize those codes that are important to value sets over those that do not appear in any of the standard VSAC value sets. How can this be accomplished with Usagi and OHDSI in general?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
