Data and Modeling
To enhance our response for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce the opening of the Pandemic Response Network Study: Duke Community Health Watch. This 28-day symptom monitoring program approved by the Institutional Review Board aims to both improve our understanding of COVID-19 as well as ensure that community members have their symptoms closely monitored and managed. The program features instructions to escalate care within Duke Health and phone follow-up by the Duke Population Health Management Office. We are seeking to enroll patients and team members who have flu-like symptoms, who have a COVID-19 test pending, who have tested positive for COVID-19, or who are concerned about COVID-19 exposure.
The HERO Registry invites healthcare workers to fight COVID-19 together. HERO Registry participants may have opportunities to participate in research studies, including the first stud—the HERO-HCQ Trial, a multicenter blinded randomized controlled trial to determine if hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is efficacious for primary prevention of COVID-19 among healthcare workers. This research trial has recently loosened inclusion criteria so that ANY healthcare provider could potentially join (including EVS and food workers). Healthcare providers working in nursing homes and long term care facilities are specifically targeted. Most of the data collected for the study will be obtained through online forms as the study progresses. Participants will only need to complete two study visits—1) enrollment and 2) 30 days (end of study)—during which investigators will obtain a blood sample (antibody test) and nasopharyngeal swab (PCR for virus). Results from these tests will be provided to the participant after the study. If you have additional questions, please reach out to Dr. Dev Anderson (email@example.com) or Rachel Addison (firstname.lastname@example.org).
