Please join us Tuesday, July 13 (11 am ET) for our next community call, when we will learn about the work and early findings from the PROTEUS Study, which was initiated during the 2020 OHDSI Global Study-A-Thon. The PROTEUS (Predicting & Recalibrating Outcomes Toward External Understanding Study) presentation will be led by:
• David Kent (Professor of Medicine, Clinical & Translational Science, Tufts Medical Center)
• Benjamin Wessler (Director, Valve Center; Assistant Professor, Tufts University School of Medicine)
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. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.
The next APAC Community Call will be held Thursday, July 15 (July 14 in parts of the Western Hemisphere), and will include two main tutorial topics: Seng Chan You will provide “An Introduction to the OMOP Oncology Module,” while Jing Li will present on “How to do a network study.” These calls take place within the OHDSI APAC team, though a direct link can be found on the OHDSI APAC page.

If you have R experience, this is a great opportunity for you to improve the reliability of HADES tools (which are critical to our community success), learn more about OHDSI software and have fun with collaborators around the world. There is more information on this forum post. If you would like to take part in this activity, please fill out this form.
Two recent presentations from our APAC Community Calls are now available. Lei Liu presented on Applying the OMOP CDM to Hepatobiliary Clinical Research Database at Zhongshan during the June 17 call, while Seng Chan You, Hua Xu, Tatsuo Hiramatsu, Jason C. Hsu, and Roger Ward provided regional mid-year updates during the July 1 call.
Peter Rijnbeek recently shared the news that the EMA has launched a new call for tenders for Real World Data subscription. The purpose of the call is to get access to and use of a set of individual patient-level databases drawn from the population receiving primary care, specialist care or hospital care in the EEA countries. The application deadline is July 30, and more information is available here.
OHDSI follows the ICMJE guidelines for authorship requirements. Our community has significant collaboration on many studies, and at times it can be challenging to determine who qualifies for authorship on an OHDSI scientific paper. The OHDSI Steering Group recently created this OHDSI Authorship Guidance sheet, which can help establish clear guidelines in the process. This form is available on OHDSI.org under both the “OHDSI Studies” and “Resources” dropdowns.
The OHDSI APAC team announced that there will be a 2-day ETL training on August 12-13 (APAC time zone). This training will include the source data analysis, ETL development, and data quality check aspects of an OMOP conversion process. The registration deadline is July 23, and you can register here.
The next edition of the CBER BEST Initiative Seminar Series will be this Wednesday, July 28, at 11 am. Jessica Gronsbell (University of Toronto) will present a talk on “Statistical learning with electronic health records data.” The seminar series is open to everybody. More information and a registration link is available here.
