His role at the Cancer Registry of Norway, which is a division of the National Institute of Public Health, involves overseeing the implementation of the OMOP standard. The establishment of the Norwegian national node occurred in 2023, following the earlier adoption of OMOP at the Cancer Registry and the other Norwegian data partners. Espen will discuss his insights on the development of the national node, as well as the Cancer Registry’s endeavors in mapping, utilizing OHDSI tools, and managing the infrastructure’s governance.

Speaker:Benjamin Skov Kaas-Hansen, Rigshospitalet Department for intensive Care. Has a hybrid background as a medical doctor and computational epidemiologist. He is transforming intensive care data to OMOP and building a datawarehouse. He and his team are taking the first steps towards a data warehouse with real-world ICU data to inform clinical trials, generate real-world causal evidence, build crisis preparedness blueprints for future epidemics, and craft AI solutions for clinical decision support.
