I am trying to store the survey data (questionnaire data) of patients in the observation table. However, am not able to understand the meaning of “Qualifier Source Value” field in this table
Can someone here help me understand this with an example?
I did read the description from cdm doc that reads as “The source value associated with a qualifier to characterize the observation”
But couldn’t understand due to lack of healthcare domain knowledge.Might be due to english proficiency as well.
Any simple examples would be helpful. Currently we are storing patient info like smoking related questions, social-circumstances, lifestyle related questions etc.
If not applicable for our scenario, can you anyway given an example of what is that field about. Would be helpful
