 The solution is the standardization of the data and a standardization of the representation. This allows methods and tools to operate on data of disparate origin, freeing the analyst from having to dissect the idiosyncrasies of a particular dataset and manipulating the data to make it fit for research. It also allows to develop analytical methods on one dataset, and applying it an any other dataset in CDM format. ​ The solution is the standardization of the data and a standardization of the representation.

-The OMOP Standardized Vocabularies were initially constructed together with the OMOP Common Data Model for the conduct of the OMOP Experiments. Therefore, their design is very simple and facilitates the minimum functionality necessary to conduct these experiments. After OMOP ended in November 2013, the OMOP Standard Vocabularies are now supported by OHDSI and maintained by [[http://​odysseusinc.com|Odysseus Inc.]]+The OMOP Standardized Vocabularies were initially constructed together with the OMOP Common Data Model for the conduct of the OMOP Experiments. Therefore, their design is very simple and facilitates the minimum functionality necessary to conduct these experiments, while at the same time allowing for a large resource like this to be maintained and developed using the very restricted resources of an Open Source Project.
