ready Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership Standard Vocabulary

Abbreviation: OMOPSV

General Information
The Standard Vocabulary is a foundational tool developed by the OMOP team to enable transparent and consistent content across disparate observational databases, and serves to support the OMOP research community in conducting efficient and reproducible observational research. The Standard Vocabulary contains all of the code sets, terminologies, vocabularies, nomenclatures, lexicons, thesauri, ontologies, taxonomies, classifications, abstractions, and other such data that are required for: 1. Creating the transformed (i.e., standardized) data from the raw data sets, 2. Searching and querying the transformed data, and browsing and navigating the hierarchies of classes and abstractions inherent in the transformed data 3. Interpreting the meanings of the data.
