Sie sind herzlich eingeladen, an dem ersten Mappathon in der Geschichte der GMDS teilzunehmen:

Welcome to Mappathon 2018, a metadata mapping challenge at the GMDS Jahrestagung 2018

Scientific challenges offer the evident comparison of different approaches and take place regularly in the field of medical image processing. This workshop aims to adjust the principle of a challenge to the research community in eHealth. Mappathon is a metadata mapping challenge that asks for methods to find corresponding data elements within similar datasets.

Mappathon is a metadata mapping challenge with the aim to find corresponding data elements within a set of (similar) medical records/ datasets and to correlate data elements among each other. For our challenge, datasets of routine documentation and clinical research are provided by the Portal of Medical Data Models. Training datasets will be curated and made available for download in different formats like FHIR questionnaires or CDISC ODM (Operational Data Model). Suitable mappings, manually determined by an expert committee as well as the evaluation matrix, according to FHIR ConceptMaps relations, are transparently published.
