COVID-19 clinical data platform
In collaboration with ISARIC (the International Severe Acute Respiratory and emerging Infections Consortium) IDDO has developed a COVID-19 clinical data platform with a governance and ethical framework to ensure the equitable sharing of data. The platform’s infrastructure includes a secure web environment for submissions, a repository where diverse data are harmonised and stored, and an open inventory of hosted data to ensure their long-term security and accessibility.
Extensive global uptake of this resource has resulted in the world’s largest standardised collection of comprehensive clinical data, these are analysed regularly and reported publicly to inform patient care and the public health response.
COVID-19 living systematic review (LSR) of registered clinical trials
The LSR is an open, accessible and frequently updated resource summarising the characteristics of COVID-19 clinical trial registry records. The LSR is created by curating the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) database and by extracting complementary information from source clinical trial registries. In partnership with Exaptive, a searchable and interactive visualisation of the results database is available online.
COVID-19 medical product quality reports
IDDO’s Medicine Quality Research Group is monitoring and analysing information in the public domain pertaining to the quality of COVID-19 medical products, including medicines, vaccines and equipment during the response and produces monthly medical product quality reports. Its global tool tracks news reports of substandard and falsified medical products in real-time and includes reports on COVID-19.
COVID-19 CDISC data standards
IDDO is part of the task force established by CDISC to rapidly develop an interim COVID-19 Therapeutic Area User Guide to standardise clinical data. The guide details how data fields specific to COVID-19 will be incorporated into the CDISC standards. CDISC has also developed an annotated case record form and mapping tool to support researchers to collect high-quality data in a format that enables integration with other datasets. The tools are freely available on the CDISC website (requires free registration).
IDDO is registered as a re3data.org repository. To stay informed with the development of the COVID-19 data platform sign up to our newsletter and for further information please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
