OHDSI’s mission is to improve health by empowering a community to collaboratively generate evidence that promotes better health decisions and better care. As a community, we envision a world in which observational research produces a comprehensive understanding of health and disease. OHDSI promotes a collaborative approach to research and has rapidly grown into a vibrant international community. Everyone is welcome to actively participate in OHDSI, whether as a patient, a health professional, a researcher, or someone who simply believes in our cause
