ONE WORLD, ONE BATTLE

The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis defined by a lack of answers to the critical questions that would help combat the disease. Yet these answers may lie hidden in the abundance of clinical data already collected from COVID patients around the world. With the right tools, talents, and collaborations, these answers could be rapidly found…

Now, providers and governments are coming together to share longitudinal patient data, and a global collaboration among researchers is building insights that could help turn the tide of the pandemic.

This is the CODAC Initiative, and we are working together to build a freely available global repository of comprehensive COVID-19 patient data to accelerate discovery of insights and evidence that can help in the fight against COVID-19.

We’re fighting back, and we need your help.

How We Are Fighting: The CODAC Initiative

COVID-19 Open Data Analytics Collaboration Initiative

Doctors are on the front line fighting COVID-19. Our goal is to find insights in data that can help arm them with the information they need to make the best decisions..

Over 2 million patients have already suffered through COVID-19, and their data likely holds hidden insights into disease manifestation, progression, and treatment efficacy. However, that data lies strewn across the world, locked up in different institutions, formats, and languages. With current technologies, the challenging task of bringing this data together, organizing it, and generating insights that could change the course of the pandemic could be achieved rapidly, in time to make a difference.

We are working with governments and providers across the globe to create a global database of COVID-19 patients. CODAC now includes systems from the US, Italy, Germany, Finland, Canada, France, and Russia, and is growing rapidly. We are calling on the global community to help us expand this dataset and discover answers to the most critical questions about COVID-19, such as:

Tests are in short supply – who should be tested? Who should get what treatment and when?
Who is most likely to have severe outcomes and require hospital resources?
Optimal care standards aren’t yet established – which interventions/ drugs are most effective?
Which factors contribute to variation in disease manifestation and outcomes across geographies and races/ethnicities?
How We Are Fighting: The CODAC Initiative
It will likely take many months to translate prospective clinical trials into effective evidence-based practices. Real world evidence from the CODAC Initiative can complement prospective trials and generate leads and discoveries from the data we have today.

We’re determined to fight this battle.
