• Extending the OMOP CDM to store the output of natural language processing pipelines (Alberto Labarga)
• The concept of anchoring in observational study design and its influence (Anna Ostropolets)
• Gold or Lead? Adjudicating Differences between CDM Data and Chart Reviews (Kimberley Dickinson)
• Competing risk regression models in cohort studies with the R package Cohort Method (Kelli Li)
