Perinatal COVID-19 Studies and Registries
PRIORITY (Pregnancy CoRonavIrus Outcomes RegIsTrY) is a nationwide study of pregnant or recently pregnant women who are either under investigation for Coronavirus infection (COVID-19) or have been confirmed to have COVID-19. This study is being done to help patients and doctors better understand how COVID-19 impacts pregnant women and their newborns.
PRIORITY Study is now closed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (SONPM) has created a National Registry for Surveillance and Epidemiology of Perinatal COVID-19 Infection.
This Registry has been approved by the University of Florida Institutional Review Board. Because this databank project collects only de-identified information, it was approved with full waiver of informed consent; a HIPAA waiver was not applicable due to the absence of PHI. The SONPM chose the data elements in consultations with their collaborators: Jeffrey Horbar at VON, Reese Clark at MedNAX, Karen Puopolo and her team at University of Pennsylvania, and our international colleagues in Australia, UK, and Europe.
