The Innovative Support for Patients with SARS COV-2 Infections Registry (INSPIRE) study is a CDC-funded COVID-19 project to understand the long-term health outcomes in recently tested adults, both negative and positive, who have suspected COVID symptoms at the time of their test. Participants will complete short online surveys every 3 months for 18 months, share information about their health using a secure web-based platform, and are compensated for their time.


This study will use a digital platform to longitudinally track comprehensive information including patient self-report as well as data that describe the process and outcome of care in the electronic medical record (EMR) of a large representative sample of patients under investigation for SARSCOV2. The objective is to generate knowledge rapidly using digital tools and collaborative sciences to produce real-time data, analysis, and reporting compared to more traditional approaches. An additional goal is to promote an open science approach whereby scientists, with proper approvals and in line with the permissions granted by the participants, have the opportunity to work with data in ways that protect individual privacy but promote rapid dissemination and implementation of knowledge.
