NIH Launches Platform to Serve as Depository for COVID-19 Medical Data

JAMA. 2020;324(4):326. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.12646

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently launched the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) to store and study medical record data from people across the country who have been diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The N3C, funded by the NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), will create an analytics platform to collect clinical, laboratory, and diagnostic data. The standardized aggregated data will be made available to researchers and clinicians to help them quickly answer questions such as which patients are more likely to need dialysis because of kidney failure or a ventilator because of respiratory failure, according to the NIH.
