Rainmakers Awarded Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Contract to Support Study of Post-Acute (Long-Haul) COVID-19
Ellicott City, MD – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Clinical Characterization of Post-Acute COVID-19 awarded Rainmakers Strategic Solutions LLC (Rainmakers) a contract to support research on the long-term effects of COVID-19. The study will characterize the prevalence, symptoms, risk factors, clinical signs, complications, and follow-up needs of people with a history of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus SARS-COV-2 infection.
Rainmakers has an extensive background in program management and is already working with the CDC on two Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome studies, one focusing on children and the other on adults. This project expands our CDC COVID portfolio as Rainmakers will monitor and track three hospitals’ medical record case abstraction activities. As each hospital conducts 300 case abstractions and data quality audits to ensure inter-rater reliability, we will provide technical assistance to the hospitals, inform the CDC of their progress, and help hospitals identify and correct abstraction errors.
