    The EHDEN consortium (European Health Data and Evidence Network) launched a call through which SMEs can apply for training and certification to convert health data from various formats to the OMOP (Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership) common data model. Deadline for submission is 29 February 2020.

    The EHDEN project is a public-private partnership, set up under the framework of IMI2. It aims to create a thriving ecosystem of data sources interested in making their data available for federated analyses in the CDM, and of SMEs who help them map this data into the OMOP format.

    Why do they need certified SMEs? The ambitions of the EHDEN project are high. It aims to standardise 100 million patient records across Europe from different geographic areas and data source types, e.g. hospital data, registries, population databases. This implies that for each of the data sources, a custom Extraction Transform and Load (ETL) process has to be developed. The data transformation needs to be of high quality and should follow all best practices with respect to transparency and reproducibility.
