OHDSI Israel


In recent years, there has been a remarkable increase in interest within Israel regarding the OMOP Common Data Model (CDM) and the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) program. The OHDSI Israel Node, founded in summer 2023, strives to become a meeting point to all interested parties, expand OHDSI adoption within the Israeli healthcare system, and generate reliable, meaningful, and actionable evidence that promotes better health decisions and better care.


  • Promote OHDSI mission, vision, and values in Israel; engage with the European and global OHDSI community.

  • Drive further standardization of Israeli data to the OMOP CDM and encourage the use of OHDSI analytics tools.

  • Facilitate training programs and workshops to generate accurate and reproducible evidence generation from observational data; involve clinicians and researchers from the academia, government, healthcare organizations, and industry.

  • Foster collaboration in national research initiatives; communicate with national policymakers to raise awareness and showcase the value of OMOP CDM and OHDSI analytics.
