Research Aims

  • To harmonize and standardize data collection across Canadian Emergency Departments through a collaborative network allowing us to rapidly accrue a rich dataset of Emergency Department patients with suspected and confirmed COVID-19 to support observational and quasi-experimental studies, and ensure high feasibility for studies requiring large sample sizes.


  • To derive, validate and implement clinical decision rules to accelerate the availability of high-quality and real-time evidence to support Emergency Department decision-making for patients with suspected and confirmed COVID-19.
