The participants of the study-a-thon will generate real-world evidence to answer questions posed by national governments, public health agencies, health-related institutions, and community members in real-time over the coming days, using more than 20 different sources of patient level data across Asia, Europe and the United States. The results will be COVID-19-specific observational study designs that can also continue to be run in databases across the world after the study-a-thon is finished, to improve our understanding of the disease.
