There are many organizations which are trying to learn from observational health data:
- Insurance companies have claims data that can tell them about their beneficiaries
- Health systems like hospitals and doctor’s offices have electronic health records that provide clinical care for their patients
- Pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions conduct registries in which they are collecting non-interventional data
In all of these situations, the question becomes how to generate real-world evidence from these different data sources?
We at OHDSI are serving all of these data holders by building tools and establishing processes to help standardize and analyze data in a higher quality and more efficient way.
If you are a data holder and are interested in collaborative research — and would like to participate in establishing and applying scientific best practices in your research — you are invited to join the OHDSI collaborative and conduct analyses on your own data or across the OHDSI data network.
