Welcome to ALL of you (@Nael @gschadow @Yuri @nmodi @zhaolili @jpegilbert @Preston @tsyoun @MathildeFruchart @lauren @kmace @victorb @JPHubaux @fmarino @Matthew_Scotch @mee)!! You’ve picked an incredible time to Join the Journey.
If you have noticed, we have moved our community calls to Zoom: New Details to Join OHDSI community Calls. Make sure to add this to your calendar. (And get your Zoom backgrounds ready! )
The community is so excited to be able to respond to these important public health challenges. The COVID activity, as in all places, is fast and furious. If you’re interested, take a spin through this update page and reach out to me if you have any topics you’re passionate about: https://www.ohdsi.org/covid-19-updates/
In the short order, have you looked at the Book of OHDSI (book.ohdsi.org)? This is a great place to learn about some of the jargon we throw around here (PLE, PLP, New User Cohorts, ATLAS, CDM,Vocabualaries).
You can also find our old recorded tutorials here: https://www.ohdsi.org/past-events/
@Rijnbeek and team recently launched the EHDEN Academy: https://academy.ehden.eu/course/index.php
^ This is a phenomenal new resource that helps talk through topics like Extract, Transform and Load processes for CDM conversions, Infrastructures, and the Analytics.
We can’t wait to have you all engaged in your niches within the community!!
