2022 OHDSI APAC Collaborator Showcase

OHDSI’s mission is to improve health by empowering a community to collaboratively generate evidence that promotes better health decisions and better care. We envision a world in which observational research produces a comprehensive understanding of health and disease. To achieve this goal, OHDSI has formed a multi-stakeholder, interdisciplinary collaboration that aims to bring out the value of health data through large-scale analytics and open-source software tools. OHDSI has established a global community of observational health researchers and a research network covering over 810 million patients.

OHDSI’s achievements to date would not be possible if not for the hard work of our growing community members. Our APAC Collaborator Showcase provides the APAC community the opportunity to share their tremendous work.

Topics of interest include observational data standards and management, methodological research, open-source analytics development, clinical research from OHDSI’s analytic use cases – clinical characterization, population-level estimation, patient-level prediction – and community development.

Showcase Structure

POSTER: a poster-board to present a static display summary of your latest research; poster measurements are to be a horizontal-orientation and 48” long x 36” high is the maximum size.
