The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) will be the mentor institute for Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh for establishing the ‘National Clinical Registry of Covid-19’.

Dr Jagat Ram, Director, PGI, said: “All patients admitted to hospitals will be recorded in the registry, along with laboratory investigation, co-morbidity and clinical history. We have to record the details of patients coming to our hospitals and guide our mentees as well.”

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, ICMR, and AIIMS (New Delhi) have planned the registry for dedicated Covid-19 hospital and Covid care centers across the country.

The registry will initially be started in 100 centers. The institutes with higher number of Covid -19 patients (admission rate should be a minimum of 100/month) will be preferred. The duration of the study will be one year.

The detailed protocol of the study will be shared on a website after necessary approvals.

dedicated Covid-19 hospitals and health centers will serve as primary sites for data collection and these will be mentored and supervised by 15 medical institutes of repute across the country, including the PGI.

The registry is aimed at collecting data regarding clinical and laboratory features, treatments and outcomes of hospitalised Covid-19 patients in India and to study the frequency, clinical and laboratory features, treatments, and outcomes of Covid-related multisystem inflammatory disorder in children and adolescents by analysing the national registry.

The expected outcome of the registry — to generate weekly epidemiological and clinical reports from the data — will be published on the ICMR/MOHFW website.
