REGISTRIES & DATA COLLECTION
Help scientists and physicians around the world learn more about COVID-19.
ACS COVID Registry - American College of Surgeons
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has developed the ACS COVID-19 Registry, which is now available to all hospitals seeking to capture meaningful data about the COVID-19 patients they treat. The overarching priority of this registry is to collect important clinical patient data for a disease about which little is known. This registry will collect data on COVID-19 patients who did not undergo surgery as well as COVID-19 patients who did.
This document outlines the methods proposed in the Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13) Impact Measurement Framework. The methods for each goal of the GPW13, centered around improving the health of billions of people by 2023, and how to calculate the indices of their goals are expounded upon, providing example calculations on both the global and country level. For more information on the GPW13, please visit their website.
Revealing the Toll of COVID-19: A Technical Package for Rapid Mortality Surveillance and Epidemic Response - Multiple Contributors
The purpose of this document is to provide practical guidance to implement rapid mortality surveillance (RMS) and measure excess mortality in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on implementation in low resource settings. This includes settings with largely paper-based systems of data collection.
The survey is intended for health workers, managers, and practitioners providing services for protecting the health and safety of workers in health facilities. The results will be used to inform action at all levels for improving the protection of health and safety of health workers in the ongoing response to COVID-19. The survey is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swahili.
COVID-19 PPE Survey - Global Anaesthesia, Surgery and Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC)
The purpose of this survey is to gain insight into individual countries’ approach to personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines during the current pandemic, and to compare with WHO guidelines. Information garnered will be collated and hopefully provide a resource to further the development of appropriate guidelines.
