Red Blood Cell Distribution Width and Mortality Risk: SARS-CoV-2 Infection

This paper investigates whether an association between mortality risk and elevated RDW at hospital admission and during hospitalization exists in patients with COVID-19.

A preliminary cohort for this study was constructed from COVID-19 positive patients cross-referenced with blood sample instrument files harvested continuously throughout the Boston spring surge with code authored by a software engineer consultant from our Research Computing Core, stored in ERIS’s Research File Area (RFA), and indexed in a MySQL database hosted by ERIS.
