2019/09/04 - "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.

In this webinar of the EHDEN webinar series, Peter Rijnbeek (Erasmus Medical Center) and Nigel Hughes (Janssen Pharmaceutica) discuss the European Health Data & Evidence Network. They explain the scope and objectives of EHDEN and how they believe EHDEN will transform the way real-world evidence is being generated. Additionally, the open call processes is explained and in particular, how SMEs and data sources can both contribute and benefit from EHDEN.

2019/03/28 - "From question to publication in 5 days - How EHDEN and OHDSI change medical evidence generation through open science."

In this 1st webinar of the EHDEN webinar series, Kees van Bochove (The Hyve) and Daniel-Prieto Alhambra (University of Oxford) discussed the EHDEN and OHDSI Study-a-thon which was organized at the University of Oxford in December 2018. They explained the concept of this 5-day meeting and how they were able to go from question, to cohort characterization, to data analysis and ultimately to evidence generation in only 5 days.
