The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) announced the rollout of the National Clinical Registry of Covid-19 (NCRC) on 7 Aug and asked hospitals and institutions treating Covid-19 patients to come forward to participate in the long-awaited initiative.

Clinical registries are useful to study trends of clinical diagnosis of patients, the outcome of treatments and patterns in disease.

One of the primary objectives of the NCRC is to study the frequency, clinical and laboratory features, treatments, and outcomes of COVID-19 related multisystem inflammatory disorder in children and adolescents by analysing the national registry.

“We need to know how other diseases such as tuberculosis and conditions like malnutrition are affecting Covid-19 patients,” said a senior scientist from ICMR on the condition of anonymity.

The ICMR aims to collect data from 100 hospitals across the country which will be fed into software created by the National Institute of Medical Statistics, an institute under ICMR.

ICMR will generate weekly reports – epidemiological and clinical reports. It said that the registry will help in formulating patient management protocols and in understanding predictors of disease severity.
