OHDSI’s mission is to improve health, by empowering a community to collaboratively generate the evidence that promotes better health decisions and better care. As a community we envision a world in which observational research produces a comprehensive understanding of health and disease. OHDSI promotes a collaborative approach to research and has rapidly grown into a vibrant international community. Everyone is welcome to actively participate in OHDSI, whether as a patient, a health professional, a researcher, or someone who simply believes in our cause
The second European OHDSI Symposium called "The Journey from Data to Evidence" aims to explain how OHDSI's methods and tools can be used to obtain reliable evidence. The focus this year will be on live demonstrations of the use of these tools to answer clinical questions.
