We have recently accessed data about patients and medications from CERNER sandbox. Based on our analysis on the data, we would like to clarify the following:
has the attribute 'code' which is based on SNOWMED convention. Similar code is used for disease too. We are curious to know if ICD codes are also available for the above? If not, is there a way to map SNOWMED to ICD codes?
* The medication statement
seems to contain almost identical records with minor changes to timestamp. We would like to know why it is replicated in this way?
* Can we be assured that the ingredients
of a medication is a complete list provided by the manufacturer in all circumstances? If not, what are the exceptions?
Thank you for your support with clarifying the above questions.
