The need for health data to be internationally Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and thereby support integrative analysis with other datasets has become crystal clear in the ongoing pandemic. The Dutch National Intensive Care Evaluation (NICE) quality registry adopted the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership Common Database Model (OMOP CDM) to achieve a FAIR database. In the process of adopting the OMOP CDM, many modeling, technical, and communication challenges needed to be solved. Through communication with the OMOP CDM implementation community, previously done research and trial-and-error we found solutions that we believe can help other healthcare institutions, especially ICU quality registries, FAIRify their databases.
