Weekly OHDSI Digest-01Nov2021

WEEKLY MEETINGS

Please join us Tuesday, Nov. 2 (11 am ET) for our next Community Call, when we will engage in discussions on future collaboration opportunities within OHDSI. As our global community starts to turn its attention towards 2022, we hope these breakout discussions will help shape different paths for OHDSI to make a positive impact in the future.

While we hope these are community-wide conversations, several leaders in the community will help facilitate the various discussions in OHDSI’s four major research areas. Everybody should start in the main meeting, and then the breakouts will be in the link below.

Methods Research: Jenna Reps and Martijn Schuemie

This breakout will be in the same link as the main community call.

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.
