OHDSI APAC - Our Asia-Pacific Community

OHDSI is a global, multi-stakeholder, interdisciplinary and open-science network that collaborates to bring out the value of health data through large-scale analytics. Our Asia-Pacific (APAC) community comprises seven regional chapters (Australia, China, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan) and has led important OHDSI initiatives around the world. 

OHDSI APAC Community in Teams
The APAC community has its own group in the OHDSI MS Teams environment to promote greater collaboration on our collaborative efforts. First, request access to our MS Teams Environment, then request access to our OHDSI APAC workgroup.

APAC Monthly Community Call
Everybody is invited to the monthly OHDSI APAC community call, which takes place the third Thursday of each month at 12 pm Korea time. These calls are meant to provide updates, share research presentations, collaborate on topics of shared interest, and plenty more. The upcoming schedule is available to the right.

Use this link to get to the bi-weekly meeting. The recordings from all 2023 calls will be posted here; recordings from both the 2021 and 2022 calls are available here.

Ongoing APAC Studies
In 2021 APAC Symposium, the four studies below were selected by the community to work together.

Study documents and meeting recordings are saved under each study channel in OHDSI APAC Teams.

Study liaisons from each chapter are working closely with the study owners, and we appreciate all the help and support.

Past APAC Events
The 2022 APAC Symposium returned to an in-person setting at the Taipei Medical University. It included main presentations on Envisioning of OHDSI Global & OHDSI APAC; The Implication Experiences in OHDSI Region; and The Challenges of Research in OHDSI APAC. The symposium also included a full-day tutorial. All slides and recordings have been posted on the symposium homepage.

The 2021 OHDSI Symposium featured a set of presentations including the State of the Global and APAC Community, the EHDEN Consortium and the FHIR/OHDSI collaboration, study sessions, workgroup meetings and a collaborator showcase.

There was also a 2021 APAC ETL Training Tutorial, which included seven sessions: Introduction to ETL & Source Data Analysis, Vocabulary Mapping Part I, Vocabulary Mapping Part II, ETL Specification Writing, ETL Specification Review, Common Issues in ETL Conversion and OMOP ETL Development, and Data Quality Checks. You can watch all of the recordings now on the tutorial homepage.

The first OHDSI APAC Symposium provided an opportunity for our Asia-Pacific collaborators to share research, updates, and network discussions. The meeting recordings are saved in 2020 APAC Symposium Teams.
