OMOP COMMON DATA MODEL AND STANDARD VOCABULARIES – VERSION 4.0
Observational data needs to adhere to a common format and content to enable the application of standardized analytical methods that are empirically tested for their performance characteristics, or their ability to detect relationships between treatment and outcome despite the strong bias in the data. The Common Data Model (CDM) standardizes the format, and the Standard Vocabulary contains the content or coding schemes used across disparate data sources and types. Please contact OMOP to share with us your experience implementing the CDM and Standard Vocabularies.

Common Data Model – Version 4.0
As part of the OMOP platform, an enhanced CDM is available in Version 4.0. It now supports health economics use cases and medical treatment outcome studies, including medical device safety, comparative effectiveness, and healthcare quality. Note: If you have implemented CDM v4.0, use Observational Source Characteristics Analysis Report (OSCAR) for CDM v4.0 otherwise, use OSCAR for CDM v2.0.

Standard Vocabularies – Version 4.0
The Standard Vocabulary contains all of the terminologies and classifications and the corresponding mapping from commonly used coding schemes that are required for:
• Creating the transformed (i.e., standardized) data from the raw data sets,
• Searching and querying the transformed data, and browsing and navigating the hierarchies of classes and abstractions inherent in the transformed data, and
• Interpreting the meanings of the data.

• All vocabulary data including licensed material - CSV format (see below)
• All vocabulary data including licensed material - SAS format (see below)
The specifications, DDL and a subset of the Standard Vocabularies are available to the public as Open Source, licensed under the Apache License Version 2.0. However, some third party vocabularies are only available to be used for certain research purposes and an End User License Agreement (EULA) has to be executed.
