The COVID-19 medical data record resource is a dynamic online platform that collects and stores de-identified information about patients with COVID-19. The resource is designed to help health officials and researchers track the spread of the virus and develop new treatments. The data collected by the resource will be made available to approved researchers for analysis.

The platform is one of many similar projects and collaborations and will play a critical role in research, drug development and surveillance. The project was developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) in collaboration with Genome Canada and Génome Québec. It is funded by Genome Canada’s Disruptive Technologies program, which invests in projects that generate economic benefits for Canada.
The platform will collect data from patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who are suspected of having the virus. The resource includes de-identified patient records, such as age, blood type and viral load measurements over time. On the site, researchers can also find information about which patients have been tested for COVID-19 and whether those tests came back positive. They can also access patient genomes from Genome Canada’s database.
