Creation of tables and relationships-Petronillah, Susan
Comment from Ada: What kind of table? For relationship, does it mean person relationship?
Comment from Petronillah: How to create a table and relate it to other tables.
Comment from Susan: An example is person table, encounter table
Comment from Team: Interested in knowing how person relationship records are created and stored.
Comment from Ada: Obviously, we misunderstood what this topic means. It doesn't mean person relationship tables but it refers to how tables related to each other within the Data Model! :)
Generation of IDs e.g. encounter type IDs, Form IDs, Concept_name ID, drug IDs
Comment from Ada: What does it mean by "Name IDs"?
Comment from Susan: This is in relation to the error we got for RASH that was displaying SKIN RASH with Concept_name_id 4897 in stead on concept_name_id 512 for RASH.
Comment from Ada: I see. I would be happy to explain this to the team.
Querying using mySQL-Petronillah, Susan
Comment from Ada: It would be great if you can include some specific examples what you want to query on
Comment from Petronillah: -E.g to query the number of patients who are on second line regimen ARV and are adults.
Comment from Susan: data retrieval/querying for data quality
Comment from Ada: Petronillah, I can certainly show you how to create a query for your example. I will give you a homework to define "second line ARV regimen" and "adults". :)
Comment from Ada: Susan, I can certainly show you some queries for data quality if you can give me examples of what kind of data quality checks you are interested.
