Davera Gabriel, a member of the new cohort in the BIDS Applied master's program, has recently received several appointments!
Davera is the co-chair to the newly created HL7 Terminology Service Management Group (TSMG). The TSMG’s purpose is to develop and set policy for the use of terminology in HL7 including the establishing and maintenance of a services catalogue under the direction of the HL7 Technical Steering Committee.
She was reappointed to the HL7 Terminology Authority, who act as official liaisons between HL7 standards development activities and publishers of vocabularies external to HL7.
Davera is also leading the Terminologies subgroup of OMOP on FHIR.The OMOP-on-FHIR Working Group was also recently formed because of a cooperative agreement established between HL7 and OHDSI. The goal of OMOP-on-FHIR is to advance coordination of projects leveraging both HL7 FHIR and OMOP, the OHDSI Common Data Model, and harmonize semantics between OMOP and FHIR, support utilization of both standards in health data science pursuits.
Keep up the good work, Davera!
