The University of Queensland OMOP Dataset

The University of Melbourne and The University of Queensland have signed an agreement to work on the conversion Queensland Health Cerner data to the OMOP common data model. Analysts are currently working on establishing a pilot extract load transform process (ETL) with synthetic Cerner data.

A community of practice is also being established to share expertise and support EMR conversions in other states.

Congratulations to our colleagues in UNSW on the publication of their paper on conversion methods for OMOP.

"Extract, Transform, Load Framework for the Conversion of Health Databases to OMOP"
