The OHDSI CDM tries to capture, from the patients point of view, their interaction with the medical system, e.g their diagnoses, procedures performed, hospital visits … So before thinking about OHDSI, you need to understand the EPIC data. Can you follow a patient’s story in EPIC, determine when they visited a doctor, what were their diagnoses, any procedures, lab tests (and results) , medications. Once you know how to get a patient’s information from EPIC, getting it into OHDSI will be somewhat formulaic.
