Hello OHDSI community,
I’m very excited to be here after the great experience of the European symposium.
My name is Iannis Drakos, a data scientist, working in the Danish region of Zealand in the field of medical research and personalized medicine.
We will soon make a decision about a favorable data-model that will be used for the region’s prospective and retrospective data, going back as far as 4 decades.
After traveling around the planet and evaluating the available OHDSI-like solutions, my personal preference is to suggest and promote the OMOP CDM as the most efficient solution.
This is based on two factors.
The first is the wide adoption of the CDM and the functionality of the available tools.
The second, and of equal importance, is the feeling that I left Rotterdam with and makes me think that the OHDSI community is too awesome to miss.
I want to thank everyone for presenting your work and helping us to better understand OHDSI and the community. And I would like to ask for your assistance in accurately describing OHDSI to the local stakeholders.
So please share cases, documentation or demos that you may have and can be used as part of an OHDSI introductory presentation to an audience without special IT/data science/bioinformatics skills.
I’m looking forward to becoming an active community member and getting to know you and the projects in more detail.
