What is the standard solution to link measurements and other clinical events?

Hi everyone,
we are converting our data to the OMOP CDM and we were wondering what was the best solution (or rather, the standard one) to manage some data in our database.

We have information about radiotherapy and the corresponding total radiation dose delivered.
We have found the following measurement to represent the total dose:
40483776 - Total radiation dose delivered
but what is the standard solution to link this measurement to the corresponding Radiotherapy (procedure)?
Is it correct to use the measurement_event_id and the meas_event_field_concept_id? Or is there another standard solution for this?

Thanks in advance,

The measurement_event_id and the meas_event_field_concept_id were added just for the purpose of linking Measurement to other clinical events.
