MyCovidDiary research adds to understanding of COVID-19 symptoms
MyCovidDiary is a clinical research project that uses technology to learn
and document COVID-19 onset and disease progression. Sponsored by Providence
St. Joseph Health, this clinical research project uses technology to collect
and analyze first-person accounts of COVID-19 from thousands of individuals—with
the hope of accelerating the medical identification, understanding and
treatment of this novel disease.
The MyCovidDiary study is designed to discover what the symptoms of Covid-19
are and how long they last. The project relies on volunteers with COVID-19
to journal, in their own words, what they are experiencing. This collection
of first-person accounts of COVID-19 from thousands of individuals will
be an extremely valuable resource for understanding this disease. We will
analyze the journal entries of participants to create a COVID Symptom
Timeline for the disease.
The study is open to any adult testing positive for COVID-19 at one of
our labs in the Providence St. Joseph Health System (this includes Providence
Health, Swedish Health System, Kadlec, PacMed, St. Joseph Health, Heritage
Health and Covenant Health).
All patients who are eligible to participate will be contacted by the MyCovidDiary
team via a text message. Sign-ups for the study will be managed via phone.
All study data will be handled with the same security as data in your electronic
health record and stored within the health system’s encrypted firewalls.
After the study is complete, all patient data will be completely removed
from the study database.
