AMIA Webinar: Launching the National Covid Cohort Collaborative (N3C)

CD2H-teal

The COVID-19 global emergency raises many difficult questions, such as: What are the key risk factors, what are the best prognostic indicators, what are best practices for ethical resource allocation, and which drugs are the most viable candidates for patients?

To address these and many other questions, the National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) and NCATS are leading the creation of a centralized, secure portal for hosting row-level COVID-19 clinical data - called the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). This initiative is a partnership among NIH institutes, HHS, VA, FDA, the CTSA program, and distributed clinical data networks PCORnet, OHDSI, ACT/i2b2, and TriNetX. The N3C will accept data via multiple data models and transform them into a common analytic model. The cloud-based collaborative portal will enable development of machine learning and other informatics tools that require a large row-level dataset, and will be overseen by a data access committee.

This global pandemic presents a unique opportunity to bring together top informatics experts from around the country to address our collective challenges. The N3C resource will offer a valuable and complementary contribution, not only for aiding the COVID-19 crisis, but for transforming how we perform global research as a nation. We believe this portal will provide additional assets needed to rapidly develop the analytics that clinical centers and physicians need now.
