Keep outdated standard concepts active and standard #186
link to original forum post
We reviewed the logic of standards concepts deprecation.
The proposal is to keep these concepts standard and active for CPT4, HCPCS and other vocabularies with the same out-dating principles. And "resurrect" them in our vocabularies making invalid_reason = null and standard_concept ='S'
March 6 Decision
Once we have resources available, we'll implement these changes
Note, we make this for HCPCS and CPT4 only. In the future we'll analyze the other vocabularies, understanding why the source deprecates the concepts and then we'll make a decision whether we need to deprecate them or just change the valid_end_date but not affect Standard_concept and invalid_reason values.
