About this Webinar: SPHN strives for increasing the interoperability of health data across Switzerland. One of the advantages of adopting healthcare data standards is the potential for participation in global and regional medical network studies. This talk will cover the OMOP Common Data Model, a data model that is maintained by the global OHDSI open science community and which has been used successfully by numerous organizations, such as the European Medicines Agency and the IMI EHDEN consortium, to perform clinical studies in routinely generated observational medical data. We will provide a concrete example of such a study, by highlighting the OHDSI COVID-19 study-a-thon which took place last year, and which provided important input for regulatory guidance on the treatment of this disease as well as resulted in a number of Lancet and Nature papers. The webinar will also briefly discuss the relation between the OMOP CDM and other healthcare data standards such as FHIR, CDISC, and the recently published SPHN interoperability framework which leverages RDF and semantic web standards.
