Using detailed, frequently updated health data in a secure database, providing up to date information about patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The data will be analysed to answer the most pressing clinical questions to support the COVID-19 emergency response and to improve the quality of patient care for the future.
DECOVID will store detailed and frequently updated health data from hospitals as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, to allow clinicians and researchers to generate rapid and robust insights that can lead to more effective clinical treatment strategies, helping patients, healthcare professionals and society.
The founding partners of DECOVID are University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, The Alan Turing Institute, University College London and the University of Birmingham. DECOVID will be placed within the infrastructure of PIONEER, the HDR-UK Health Data Research Hub for Acute Care. DECOVID will be opening its doors to extend the number of NHS Trusts, other healthcare providers and academic partners contributing to the project.
