2020 Collaborators Showcase

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting submissions for this year’s online Collaborators Showcase!

OHDSI’s mission is to improve health, by empowering a community to collaboratively generate the evidence that promotes better health decisions and better care. We envision a world in which observational research produces a comprehensive understanding of health and disease. To achieve this goal, the OHDSI team has formed a multi-stakeholder, interdisciplinary collaborative which aims to bring out the value of health data through large-scale analytics and open-source software tools. OHDSI has established a global community of observational health researchers and a research network covering over 600 million patients.

OHDSI’s achievements to date would not be possible if not for the hard work of our growing community members. Our annual collaborator showcase provides collaborators the opportunity to showcase their tremendous work.

Once again we’ll be inviting collaborators to participate in the collaborator showcase. Collaborators will have the opportunity to submit their work for poster presentations, oral presentations and software demonstrations.

Topics of interest include:
– Observational data standards and management
– Methodological research
– Open-source analytics development
– Clinical research from OHDSI’s analytic use cases:
– Clinical characterization
– Population-level estimation
– Patient-level prediction

SHOWCASE STRUCTURE:

1) POSTER: a poster to present a static display summary of your latest research.

Last year during the 2019 OHDSI Symposium, we conducted a natural experiment to evaluate alternative methods for evidence dissemination. Inspired by Mike Morrison’s video on #betterposter (https://youtu.be/1RwJbhkCA58), we created 2 different poster templates and we asked that you consider using either one as you prepared your poster. As many people liked the Mike Morrison  poster template, we included it once again as a template for this year’s symposium. Both templates can be found below should you want to use them:

The traditional poster template is available here

The Mike Morrison poster template is available here

 2) ORAL PRESENTATION: a 7-minute presentation to verbally share your story with the community. 

3) SOFTWARE DEMONSTRATION: an interactive display of open-source analytics.

As this year’s Collaborators Showcase will be presented virtually and is a work-in-progress, we have included Video Abstract guidelines below should you need assistance. Please stay tuned for more showcase details as we plan for a very creative and informative showcase!
