OHDSI Italia 

Background 

In Italy, as in Europe, the interest revolving around the OHDSI program and the OMOP Common Data Model is growing in the last years. Academic research groups, data partners (e.g. hospitals and registries) and SMEs, thanks also to the drive provided by the EHDEN project, are, each from their own point of view, paying more and more attention to the different aspects that characterize the heterogeneous community of OHDSI. 

The "OHDSI Italia" node wants to be a point of reference and meeting place for all these Italian realities, in order to exploit each other's experiences in approaching the international community as well as to address typically national issues that would find little space / interest in other OHDSI working groups.  

Objectives 

The main objectives of "OHDSI Italia" are: 

  • Promote OMOP/OHDSI  
    • through dissemination events 
    • by adding new members and data partners to the national node 
  • Promote national projects 
    • ICT (e.g. Health Big Data) 
    • Observational studies 
  • Coordinate dialogue with  
    • Local Regions 
    • Ministry of research and Ministry of health 
    • Existing projects 
  • Contribute to the OHDSI community 
  • Mapping Italian terminologies and codes on OMOP 
    • National codes: e.g. AIC codes for drugs (Federfarma) 
    • Regional codes 
  • Define common administrative procedures 
    • DPO approval 
    • EC approval 
    • AGID guidelines (for public entities) 
    • Internal SOP / IO
