There are several ways to participate: hospitals can participate directly in the data collection by contributing data from their patients; researchers or research groups can also submit their research question(s). Further information about participation can also be requested via the form below.

Data collection hospitals

Hospitals can contribute to the data collection for the central COVID database in the Netherlands. The consortium offers support for the data collection. There are also tools and tips to make the data collection as efficient and convenient as possible.

Data is collected from patients with COVID-19 admitted to the nursing ward or intensive care unit. This concerns data that is collected on the basis of the World Health Organization (WHO) form developed for this purpose. In some cases, parts of the data can also be extracted from existing electronic patient files or data from existing databases may be combined. Please contact us through the form below, to inquire about the different possibilities.

Research questions

Research groups or researchers can submit their research questions to the steering committee. The research question will be evaluated on feasibility and possible conflicts of interests. Together we can determine terms and possibilities, in order to make a plan and learn more on COVID-19
