As part of the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched a patient data center to store medical record data from those infected with COVID-19.

The N3C is funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and aims to help scientists analyze data to understand more about the disease and develop effective treatments.

With 35 sites collaborating across the United States, the diverse data will be beneficial to researchers and providers, allowing them to harness live data and speed treatments.

The creation of a data enclave with this magnitude will help researchers and health care providers predict previously unforeseen issues, such as highlighting predictors for patients who may be in need of dialysis due to kidney failure and the like.
