COVID-19 Research and Analytics

Alliance for Research on COVID-19 (ARC)

To ensure that no health system has to weather a storm like the COVID-19 crisis alone, Providence created a non-profit data alliance that includes health systems and others dedicated to COVID-19 research.  Under this alliance, de-identified patient data is only used for COVID-19 related research.  There is no fee to join and data will not be sold. 
Data includes: 

  • Predictive Monitoring, Analytics, and Modeling
  • Operational Reporting
  • Clinical Decision Support
  • Epidemiology Insights
  • Caregiver Insights

Providence’s work across institutions can help save lives and establish the foundation for eventual recovery within our communities.

The Coronavirus Epidemic Registry and Emergency Data Platform enables health systems to track COVID-19 patient census and resources they are utilizing in each facility, such as ICU beds, ventilators, and PPE. The tool also helps us understand community penetration of the virus by zip code with data that informs challenging resource decisions. It can tell us when to initiate universal masking and how to shift supplies between regions to accommodate an anticipated patient surge.
