The Legend Initiative (Oct. 19 Community Call)

Please join us Tuesday, Oct. 19 (11 am ET) for our next OHDSI community call, which will focus on the LEGEND Initiative. LEGEND (Large-scale Evidence Generation and Evaluation across a Network of Databases) applies high-level analytics to perform observational research on hundreds of millions of patient records within OHDSI’s international database network.

LEGEND principles have been applied to studying the effects of treatments for depression, hypertension, and COVID-19, and are being applied to Type 2 diabetes. The clinical impact of LEGEND has already been observed, with important evidence that promotes better health decisions published in Lancet, JAMA Internal Medicine, and Hypertension.

Next week, we will hear more about the LEGEND project, its work around hypertension, and plans around Type 2 diabetes.

Many of you will have the calendar link in your OHDSI Teams environment. If not, you will need the specific meeting link to access the community call; it will also be posted in the main OHDSI Teams environment. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.
