COVID-19 DREAM Challenge Has Launched

COVID-19 DREAM Challenge Has Launched

The COVID-19 EHR DREAM Challenge is now open for registration. Help identify COVID-19 risk factors and predict who might be positive. The Challenge initially will use UW Medicine clinical data sets. If successful, we expect to expand this benchmarking effort to include methods for predicting trajectory and mortality as well as data from additional sites.

This is a research project being supported by many including Sage Bionetworks, the University of Washington School of Medicine Departments (Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Radiology and Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education), UW Medicine Information Technology Services, the Institute of Translational Health Sciences, the Center for Data To Health, the CLEAR Center and many faculty. We thank the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) for support and for providing cloud infrastructure for facilitating synthetic data access to data scientists for the purpose of validating models.
