In recent years, TMU has been committed to big data analysis and artificial intelligence applications in the medical field. TMU actively participates in international cooperation, including OHDSI, which is headquartered in Columbia University in the U.S. The OHDSI gathers researchers worldwide to establish an observational medical database for bringing out the value of health data through large-scale analysis.
Through such a close cooperation with OHDSI tools, TMU has formed a relevant academic community and subsequently established the OHDSI Taiwan in March 2020. Core members include Professor Yu-Chuan (Jack) Li (李友專), Professor Min-Huei Hsu (許明暉), Assistant Professor Usman Iqbal, etc. TMU hopes to expand the OHDSI mechanism throughout Taiwan as soon as possible so that more medical institutions in Taiwan can participate and contribute toward better medical decision-making and global medical care.
