Within the scope of the two NUM projects CODEX and RACOON we developed a preliminary technical concept for documenting clinical and radiological COVID-19 data in a collaborative approach and its preceding findings of a requirement analysis. At first, we provide an overview of NUM and its two projects CODEX and RACOON including the GECCO data set. Furthermore, we demonstrate the foundation for the increased collaboration of both projects, which was additionally supported by a survey conducted at University Hospital Frankfurt. Based on the survey results mint Lesion™, developed by Mint Medical and used at all project sites within RACOON, was selected as the “Electronic Data Capture” (EDC) system for CODEX. Moreover, to avoid duplicate entry of GECCO data into both EDC systems, an early effort was made to consider a collaborative and efficient technical approach to reduce the workload for the medical documentalists. As a first effort we present a preliminary technical concept representing the current and possible future data workflow of CODEX and RACOON. This concept includes a software component to synchronize GECCO data sets between the two EDC systems using the HL7 FHIR standard. Our first approach of a collaborative use of an EDC system and its medical documentalists could be beneficial in combination with the presented synchronization component for all participating project sites of CODEX and RACOON with regard to an overall reduced documentation workload.
