Thanks everyone for joining today’s OHDSI call and a big thanks to @jweave17, @jswerdel & @anthonysena for give us an update from the Barcelona study-a-thon. Full results from the study-a-thon will be presented on the Feb 11th OHDSI call.

The recording of today’s call has been posted here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kQ9nltW2nFrbT4zOIIKJmVxxVmZZYiuJ/view?usp=sharing

Thanks to @krfeeney for telling us all about how to run an network research study! Kristin’s slides are now available here: https://www.ohdsi.org/resources/presentations/community-meeting-presentations/

Links to the resourses Kristin highlighted are listed below.

And if someone wants to know where to begin…

… and ask about the OHDSI Study Nurture Committee (OHDSI Study Nurture Committee). (It’s recommended the investigator provide some background on what they’re wanting to study and their own skill set [e.g. I’m a clinician, I’m a programmer, etc etc] to help gauge where the community can assist them.)

Note: it is highly recommended that prior to embarking on a network study, an investigator attends OHDSI tutorials in the OMOP Common Data Model and Standardized Vocabularies, Cohort Definition/Phenotyping and the method of choice (Patient-level Prediction, Population-Level Estimation). Recordings of these tutorials can be found here: https://www.ohdsi.org/past-events/
