Hi, my name is Stan Robertson, and I am working on what we call the "Health Data Platform" for the Ministry of Health, Government of British Columbia, Canada.
We have not standardized on the OMOP model and OHDSI platform, but it is intriguing as a solution for our needs. We are issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) in April, so the selected proposal will help determine the platform.
I am impressed with the OHDSI community and what it has accomplished. Our challenges with using the model includes mapping Canadian codes (e.g. ICD-10-CA and ICD-9-CA), and other source codes to OMOP Concepts, and we are also planning to implement a "Federated" system - not storing all data in one location, except for extracted data specific to research projects.
I welcome any suggestions anyone has to help us on the right path, and I hope to contribute in return if we continue along this journey.
