COMBATCOVID (Consortium for Multisite Biomedical Analytics and Trials on COVID-19)

puzzle and hands

Given how recent and unknown the Coronavirus disease is, and its inherent epidemic nature, there are a limited number of cases at individual medical institutions. The limitation of the number of cases per institution becomes even more relevant when isolating subpopulations with specific health conditions and across the lifespan.

COMBATCOVID will bring together electronic health records (EHR) data from multiple participating institutions into a shared centralized database. As part of the COMBATCOVID effort, biospecimens data of COVID-19 patients collected by some of the participating institutions will also be shared and linked to the respective EHR data. The COMBATCOVID consortium will be responsible for transferring EHR data pertaining to participating institutions interested in contributing EHR data to the N3C database.

Participating CTSA Institutions include:
NYU Grossman School of Medicine at NYU Langone Health
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Rutgers Biomedical/Health Sciences
State University of New York at Buffalo
University of Rochester
Wake Forest University Health Sciences
