NFDI4Health Task Force COVID-19 Study Portal
The development of an inventory of German health studies on COVID-19 is one of the central goals of the NFDI4Health Task Force COVID-19. The aim is to enable findability of studies and access to structured health data to improve the management of public health data on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unlike other initiatives, the Study Hub NFDI4Health COVID-19 will focus not only on clinical research but also on studies relating to the consequences of the pandemic for public health, such as utilisation of healthcare services, quality of life and the effects of social isolation. Furthermore, the hub provides access to the instruments like (sample) questionnaires and more information down to the variable level. Underlying the Study hub there is a metadata model embedded. A publication policy covering this metada model has recently been published..
