This course gives an introduction into the history of the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) and the birth of Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI). It highlights OHDSI’s vision as well as how OHDSI is trying to drive the future of observational research through network studies. The course will then move on to understanding the OMOP Vocabularies, as it’s it is important to understand how the vocabulary is used in examples prior to moving on to the OMOP Common Data Model (CDM). The final section of the course will explain in detail the layout of the CDM as well as some key concepts such as era logic.
