2019 OHDSI F2F in Cleveland, June 2-4, 2019

(Mark Beno) #1

Hello all,

We are really looking forward to hosting the 2019 OHDSI F2F at the beginning of June. Below is the email that I have sent out locally to all of our 4 major hospitals and to the CWRU community. We have already generated local interest via an OHDSI workshop held earlier this year (links to videos below) and via an introduction to Athena and ATLAS for first year medical students (lecture and hands-on session). We hope to see many of you in Cleveland in a few short weeks!

Best regards,

Dear Colleagues,

You have heard us talk about the international OHDSI collaborative and the OMOP common data model used to organize, harmonize, and standardize electronic health data that would otherwise exist in silos. We are pleased to announce that the 2019 OHDSI Face-2-Face Meeting is being hosted by the Cleveland Institute for Computational Biology on June 2-4, 2019 in the Wolstein Research Building.

This event will kick-off with a late afternoon public talk by OHDSI leadership followed by dinner on Sunday, June 2. The two days that follow will be a working meeting where participants will break up into groups for the purpose of contributing to the forthcoming Book of OHDSI . The overall study topic/example will be Hypertension .

We invite everyone to attend the public talk and dinner to learn more about the important work being done by OHDSI, including that of the Cleveland collaborators. Those of you who want to learn even more about OHDSI/OMOP are more than welcome to attend and contribute to the 2-day working meeting on June 3 and 4. The goal is to make our work accessible to all stakeholders.

Registration for both events is required and can be accessed here: https://forms.gle/knTiHFPaUug9FmxKA

A full agenda is here (with a registration link at the bottom of the page): https://www.ohdsi.org/events/2019-ohdsi-face-to-face/

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, and please feel free to forward to others who may also be interested.

Best regards and hope that many of you can attend,
