The COVID-19 Patient Data Consortium for Research, or COVID Patient Registry (CPR), is a centralized repository for COVID-19 patient data that is a research resource intended for the study of COVID-19 disease and its sequelae among Filipinos. The registry has a universally applicable format to allow data aggregation and interoperability across research institutions and health facilities to promote research collaboration and data sharing, and accelerate discovery and technological advances in healthcare.
The Consortium is currently composed of the University of San Agustin - Center for Informatics (USA-CFI) as the data steward, National Center for Mental Health (NCMH), Makati Medical Center (MMC), The Medical City (TMC) Group of Hospitals, Lung Center of the Philippines (LCP), Philippine General Hospital (PGH), and Visayas and Mindanao hospitals as data contributors.
If successful, the COVID-19 Patient Registry (CPR) will provide the growing need for high quality research-ready data on COVID-19 patients in the Philippines. Scientists and researchers will utilize the data for research on disease phenotypes, clinical course, risk factors, patient care, treatment/drug response, diagnostics, vaccines, health outcomes, AI/ML, and many other topics.
The data governance document will serve as guide for the planning and implementation of all data-related activities of the consortium. A CPR Information Packet is also publicly available for viewing of Philippine hospitals that are interested in contributing their patient data and joining the COVID-19 patient data consortium.
