OptumLabs launches COVID-19 research for select members in Wisconsin

To develop and strengthen the research around prevention, diagnosis, infection rates, survivorship and long-term health complications from COVID-19, OptumLabs is launching COVID+ Community – a research registry that invites individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2 to engage in OptumLabs-sponsored COVID-19-related research as it becomes available. Eligible individuals will be invited to participate in the COVID-19 Symptom and Immunity Study – a 2-year study of 10,000 individuals that collects patient-reported symptoms, blood biomarkers and data on clinical health complications due to COVID-19. This research may help: 

  1. Predict the scale of future health complications due to COVID-19 within diverse populations
     
  2. Link symptoms and clinical outcomes with predictive blood biomarkers to optimize diagnostic evaluations among individuals infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus
     
  3. Characterize immunity over time and its possible association with complications from COVID-19
     
  4. Evaluate the effectiveness of interventions that may prevent more severe health outcomes in the future
