OHDSI Community Calls

Everybody is invited to the weekly OHDSI community call, which takes place each Tuesday at 11 am ET. These calls are meant to inform and engage our community through a variety of call formats, including community presentations, working group updates, breakout sessions, focus topics, newcomer-focused sessions, and more. The upcoming schedule is available to the right.

Use this link to get to the weekly meeting.

Videos and slides from previous calls will be posted below. Both videos and slides from community calls prior to 2021 remain available.

The first OHDSI community call of 2021 was led by Patrick Ryan, who discussed setting objectives and key results in an effort to better align the community towards targeted goals in 2021. The full video presentation is below the shoutout links, while the associated slides are available here.

Shoutouts From This Week: Four papers associated with our community were highlighted in our new “Weekly Shoutouts.” They are below:

Also, George Hripcsak thanked the community for input on the FDA protocol and noted how appreciative the FDA was about our efforts, and Kees van Bochove shared about an upcoming effort to study the natural disease history of prostate cancer. Look for more information to come about that effort!
