Jenna Reps will present "Best Practices for Prediction Using Observational Data"

Henrik John will present "External Validation of Existing Dementia Prediction Models on Observational Health Data"

Ross Williams will present "The Prediction Model Library"

(Please note that the U.S. observed daylight saving this past weekend, so please check the meeting time if you live elsewhere!)

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.

OHDSI SHOUTOUTS

Congratulations to Alison Callahan, Vladimir Polony, José Posada, Juan Banda, Saurabh Gombar, and Nigam Shah on publication of the study “ACE: the Advanced Cohort Engine for searching longitudinal patient records” in JAMIA.

Two leaders in the OHDSI community recently achieved professional milestones. Hua Xu , who leads our NLP and China workgroups, was recently named Associate Dean for Innovation at UTHealth, while Seng Chan You, a leader in our Asia-Pacific community, recently started a new position as Research Assistant Professor in Severance Hospital in Seoul, South Korea. Congratulations to both Hua and Chan!

Chan announced that the Yonsei University Hospital System will join OHDSI as an active collaborator as part of the most recent OHDSI collaborator spotlight. In this Q&A, Chan also discusses his new role, OHDSI’s growth in the Asia-Pacific region, leading the COVID-19 data sharing efforts, and plenty more.

MORE OHDSI UPDATES

The OHDSI APAC webpage is now live: https://www.ohdsi.org/apac/. This page will include recordings from all APAC community calls, which are held bi-weekly on Wednesday at 10 pm ET. It also includes information about upcoming calls, the different APAC regional chapters, how to engage with the APAC community, and more.

The Pioneer/EHDEN/OHDSI study-a-thon was a terrific success last week, with more than 200 participants joining the important effort. We look forward to having representatives from the study-a-thon present on the research and findings in a future community call!

EHDEN opened its third open call for SMEs to apply for training and certification to convert health data from various forms to the OMOP common data model. This call will run from March 15 through April 12. EHDEN currently has 26 SMEs to support mapping and sustainability for a network currently including 60 data partners (there will be two more data partner calls in 2021). Check out this recent update on EHDEN, which came from a February community call presentation.

The OHDSI March Visualization Challenge is underway, and we already have a handful of entries. Please check out the channel within the general OHDSI page for full instructions, and to see a few of the early posts that highlight a visualization using OHDSI tools/data/results that tells the most compelling story touching on the COVID pandemic.
