2022 APAC OHDSI Symposium

Nov. 12 - 13 • Taipei Medical University

There has been exciting progress and growth within the OHDSI Asia-Pacific (APAC) community, and that was shown during the 2022 APAC Symposium, held Nov. 12-13 at the Taipei Medical Center. Thank you to Taiwan Chapter lead Jason Hsu and the full team for putting this terrific two-day event together. Following a full-day tutorial on “An Introductory Journey from Data to Evidence,” there was a one-day conference that included three featured talks:

• Envisioning of OHDSI Global & OHDSI APAC
• The Implication Experiences in OHDSI Region
• The Challenges of Research in OHDSI APAC

This APAC Symposium homepage has all of the talks and slides from the tutorial, as well as the posters presented during the Collaborator Showcase. Talks from the main day will be posted when available. You can check them all out below.
