Reducing cancer deaths and complications by leveraging OMOP and OHDSI.
Surgery is the major treatment option for colorectal cancer, which today is the third most common form of cancer worldwide. However, understanding when and how to apply surgery, in combination with drugs, radiotherapy and other medical treatment options, is an ongoing field of research.
In this webinar, Ismail Gögenur, director of the Center for Surgical Science at Zealand University Hospital in Denmark, will explain how his team is utilising the OMOP Common Data Model and the OHDSI tools to achieve a holistic view on the risk profile and treatment options for colorectal cancer patients. While earlier webinars focused on the EHDEN project, the OMOP CDM itself and ways to generate medical evidence, this one will focus on arguably the most impactful aspect: using OMOP, OHDSI and EHDEN to make better decisions in clinical practice, reducing mortality and complications by the smart use of medical data at scale.
