National Cohort Covid Collaborative
The National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) is a clinical repository that is being established to address critical research questions related to the COVID‑19 pandemic. The goals of N3C are to enable rapid collection of clinical data at the peak of the pandemic in order to contribute towards understanding of the disease, inform design of clinical studies and trials, and identification of effective interventions. N3C aggregates clinical data derived from electronic medical records of patients who were tested for COVID-19 (positive and negative results) at CTSA program institutions and partners. Limited datasets consisting of demographics, diagnoses, procedures, laboratory results, and medications harmonized to the OMOP model are stored in the repository and will be available within the National Institutes of Health’s analytics environments. The University of Utah is participating in this national endeavor and is contributing its data.
