We’re excited to invite you to the Health Equity Workgroup activity at the 2023 OHDSI Global Symposium!

Date: October 21st 2023
Time: 8 am – 12 pm

The Health Equity Workgroup is thrilled to present a dynamic series of sessions at the OHDSI Symposium this fall. Our mission is to champion health equity advances within the our community. Join us as we delve deep into the confluence of Real-World Evidence (RWE) and innovative strategies to address health inequities

Highlights Of What We Will Be Discussing:

  1. Data-Driven Innovation for Health Equity: An exclusive session showcasing critical topics on health inequities, advances in health technologies, the rise of digital literacy, and the pivotal role of generative AI in Real-World Evidence (RWE) studies.
  2. Advancing Implementation from Knowledge: An in-depth discussion featuring diverse perspectives, aiming to bridge the gap between Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) data elements, innovative methodologies, and daily unmet health needs.
  3. Health Equity Interactive workshop: Immerse yourself in a hands-on exploration of a state-of-the-art R tool (Health Equity Explorer) crafted by OHDSI team members, enabling health equity data generation, intricate visualizations, and solid statistical analytics.
  4. OHDSI Health Equity Shark Tank: Here’s a chance for participants to present their research proposals addressing health inequities in our Shark Tank-inspired session. The most innovative ideas will be championed as official Health Equity Workgroup projects.
