Queen’s University

 Virtual Seminar
Tuesday, September 15, 2020 @ 5:00 PM

The Ontario Health Data Platform (OHDP) is being built to better detect, plan and respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. This is a collaborative effort by leading public sector organizations to accelerate research and analytics within Ontario to help the province better manage and respond to the pandemic.

OHDP links large health datasets from a variety of sources to create an unprecedented volume of rich, connected data. This integrated approach to data coupled with massive computing power offers researchers the potential to anticipate epidemiological trends, generate new clinical insights and develop treatment innovations to aid in the fight against COVID-19. The platform also supports exploratory research based on machine learning.
