April 21, 2020

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is announcing an ongoing partnership with Oracle, including Oracle's donation to HHS of the Therapeutic Learning System, an online platform designed to collect real-time medical data related to COVID-19. 

The Therapeutic Learning System is a safe, secure web portal designed to gather crowd-sourced, real-time information from doctors and other clinicians about how patients are responding to possible therapeutics to treat COVID-19. The data will not be owned by Oracle or any other private entity. 

"Oracle's platform will help give us the ability to see real-time information about the patient impact of possible therapeutics around the country, which is critical to combating COVID-19 and reopening the American economy," said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. 

Doctors and other clinicians who would like to help provide this data can begin reporting on their work with affected patients immediately at The online portal also provides the ability of COVID-19 patients to self-report from home. 

The portal is designed to deliver instantaneous analysis of what is working and what is not from the treatment and experience of patients around the country, providing analytics on types of patients, age brackets, underlying health conditions, and symptoms.
