This paper cleaned, transformed and imported EMR data into OMOP CDM using distributed network and Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) tools. The treatment pathways were analyzed retrospectively, and the effects of the four medications most commonly used in the second-line therapy after the first-line of metformin recommended by the guidelines were compared emphatically. The conclusion would be one of the bases for the selection of clinical treatment in the future.
