Associated scholarship(s):21/11403-5 - Mining multimodal records: explainable patterns and anomalies discovery, BE.EP.PD


Health institutions store their patient data into their own repositories in their own repositories, using the structural particularities that each institution defines to carry out their activities. However, data for each individual are spread across many repositories in different institutions and formats, leading to frequent sharing of information between institutions. Given the differences in how and what data is recorded, there is a pressing need for standards for interoperability. One of the most recent and promising technologies for sharing medical data is based on the Common Model of Observational Data in Medicine (OMOP-CDM) proposed by OHDSI initiative. Data stored in EHR are fundamentally multimodal (images, videos, time series, etc.), acquired from distinct sources and with varying structures and formats that must be properly managed. This project aims at bridging both sources and formats, developing techniques to integrate results of previous GBdI research obtained with image-based medical examination data into OMOP. Although there is still no standardized support for similarity comparisons nor for complex data types such as images in OMOP, this research intends to provide it to MIVisDB Project and the area community.
