Hello, my name is Dave Barman. I am an information scientist and I have been working in the analytics and data management field since 2003. I have worn many hats during my career, as a developer, infrastructure specialist, business analyst, project manager, data architect, solution architect etc. At the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia I worked as a founding member of the team for enterprise analytics and guided the enterprise through adoption and maturation of analytics. Having ‘been there done that’ for many aspects of EHR data, I am thrilled now to be part of the OHDSI community and want to put my experience to work in advancing the CDM and assisting organizations in adoption. I am working with Odysseus Data Services and thrilled to start on this journey. It is a pleasure to meet everyone.
