Joining the network

Participation in the COVID-19 ED Registry has been formalized by the execution of the COVID-19 ED Registry Membership Agreement, effective as of the end of April 2020.

The Registry Membership Agreement is intended to cover the different aspects of the COVID-19 ED Registry, from the rules regarding the contribution and use of the Registry Data to the governance of the different registry committees. Because the involved parties recognize the importance of a broad, nation-wide participation in the COVID-19 ED Registry, the Membership Agreement foresees in a simple and quick process to add new investigators and their institutions as a member to the COVID-19 ED Registry.

The Registry Membership Agreement furthermore sets the framework for any COVID-19 ED Registry publications and future registry-based studies.
