Please join us Tuesday, Nov. 9 (11 am ET) for our next OHDSI community call, when we will have three demos to educate the community about tools to use for the adoption of our OHDSI data standards. Topics and presenters are available below:
• Introduction to CDM v5.4 (Clair Blacketer)
• OHDSI Vocabularies (Michael Kallfelz)
• ETL Inspection Report (Maxim Moinat)
Many of you will have the calendar link in your OHDSI Teams environment. If not, you will need the specific meeting link to access the community call; it will also be posted in the main OHDSI Teams environment. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.

Congratulations to Patricia Biedermann, Rose Ong, Alexander Davydov, Alexandra Orlova, Philip Solovyev, Hong Sun, Graham Wetherill, Monika Brand and Eva-Maria Didden for the publication of Standardizing registry data to the OMOP Common Data Model: experience from three pulmonary hypertension databases in BMC Medical Research Methodology.
The Hyve recently published this FAIRplus recipe on how to make published observational research data more FAIR. The recipe describes the work done on making data on the website of the Covid-19 EHDEN/OHDSI studyathon, held in March 2020, more findable and interoperable.
The latest Open Data Partner Call, hosted by EHDEN, will conclude next Monday, Nov. 15, at 17:00 CET. Following the four open calls to date, EHDEN currently has 98 data partners from 23 different countries which are mapping their data to the OMOP common data model. This includes several EHDEN project partners who have also mapped their data to the OMOP CDM for use in the federated network.
The 2021 APAC Symposium will be held Nov. 18 (APAC time zone). There are several planned talks during the full-day event, including ones focused on the FHIR/OHDSI collaboration, the APAC Chapter vision for 2022, the EHDEN consortium and state of the community talks for both the global community and the APAC community. More details have been posted to the OHDSI APAC page, and you can register for the symposium here.
