Google Launches ATLAS On GCP

ATLAS is a free, publicly available, web-based, open-source solution created by the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics. Atlas allows researchers to define patient cohorts, select analytical designs, set parameters and execute analytical methods against data.

Recently, Google Cloud announced its partnership with Odysseus Data Services to launch ATLAS on GCP. ATLAS; a free, publicly available, web based; program is a multi-stakeholder, interdisciplinary collaboration to make open-source solutions that bring out the value of observational health data via large-scale analytics.

Well, ATLAS supports everything from data visualization and cohort building to deep learning models. All of the tools of ATLAS are deployed leveraging the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) common data model.

Odysseus, one of the ATLAS developers and an active OHDSI community participant, collaborated with Google Cloud to enable GCP BigQuery support. The partnership with Google Cloud provides users with the infrastructure for these open source tools. 

Google said that in addition to this new partnership with OHDSI, Google Cloud provides the basis for other open-source data platforms such as Terra. Tera is developed by Verily and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
