Odysseus Data Services posted two new openings recently. There are currently openings for an epidemiologist and a data scientist. Please check out the links for more information and/or to apply for these jobs.
Professor Peter Rijnbeek announced an opening for an epidemiologist to work with his team at Erasmus MC. This position will be responsible for all aspects of observational research including protocol writing, input in the statistical analysis plan, study execution, interpretation of results and report/manuscript writing. The application deadline is July 8, 2022.
Thank you to everybody who submitted brief reports to join our #OHDSI2022 Collaborator Showcase. We had a record amount (more than 130!) of submissions for poster presentations, software demos and oral presentations for the 2022 OHDSI Symposium, which will be held Oct. 14-16 in Bethesda, Md. The scientific committee meets this week to begin the process of reviewing all submissions, and selected presenters will be notified by August 3, 2022.
Our July 12 Community Call will be focused on new adopters of the OMOP CDM or new members of the OHDSI community. We are welcoming people to introduce themselves, share why they have joined the community and what impact they hope to make, and also ask a question to the broader community. If you would like to take part in this event, please fill out this form to help us plan the session.
The OHDSI Social Showcase has returned! Accepted submissions from the European Symposium Collaborator Showcase will be shared on the OHDSI Twitter and LinkedIn feeds. Here are the posters that will be highlighted this week.
Monday – Why predicting risk can’t identify ‘risk factors’: empirical assessment of model stability in machine learning across observational health databases (Aniek Markus)
Tuesday – OMOP Genomic mapping capacities in conversion of comprehensive genomic profiling results (Maria Rogozhkina)
Wednesday – Perseus Design and run your own ETL to CDM (Anton Ivanov)
Thursday – Using geospatial approaches and machine learning for asthma and COPD outcomes: a systematic review (Daniel Jeannetot)
Friday – A pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of using Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics analytics tools for supporting the validation of safety signals (Ceyda Pekmez)
On behalf of the Health Systems Special Interest Group, lead Melanie Philofsky shared this recent forum post requesting assistance in a creating central repository of different OMOP sites, their underlying EHR system, and attributes. If you can add to this repository and enhance community knowledge, please fill out this form.
As mentioned earlier, the launch of the EHDEN Portal was announced during the European Symposium. The Portal includes a Data Partner Catalogue and Feasibility Dashboards that support data discoverability (findable under Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles). The Portal represents the start of an open platform to facilitate identifying data that is likely to be used for a research topic, through the study workflow to analytical results. It gives researchers more granular insights into EHDEN’s 140-strong Data Partner network with currently more than 500 million anonymous patient records being mapped to the OMOP common data model local to the data.
If you couldn’t make the European Symposium, watch this space or the OHDSI social feeds on updates for when the recordings will be available.
