PCORnet COVID-19 Common Data Model Design and Results

Carton, Thomas W.; Marsolo, Keith; Block, Jason Perry

Original Post: NIH Collaboratory


Key Points

  • For data to be useful in research, they have to be standardized across systems. The PCORnet Common Data Model standardizes data into a single language, enabling fast insights.
  • All the core data elements needed to support COVID-19 research and surveillance have a home in the PCORnet CDM. The goal for PCORnet is to characterize the cohort of COVID-19 patients and provide detailed information on demographics and pre-existing conditions.


Discussion Themes

Can PCORnet partners stand up a version of the CDM with more up-to-date information to allow for a faster characterization of the PCORnet COVID-19 population?

Is there a query to discover and address COVID-19 health disparities and social determinants of health?

Can PCORnet and NCATS’ National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) work together?
