Stanford Medicine has launched a national tech-enabled survey, with the aim of creating better visibility into the true prevalence, severity and duration of COVID-19. The survey will solicit information, including symptoms and behaviors, from both healthy and sick individuals. Coupled with local testing results, it will enable actionable insights that can be used to inform regional and national response efforts. We encourage you to participate as the creation of this robust and actionable data set is dependent on participation across Stanford Medicine and our broader communities. Note, this survey is optional and is not a substitute for any employer-specific requirements, such as mandated symptom reporting.



The development of the survey has been led by Lawrence “Rusty” Hofmann, MD, Professor of Radiology, Chief of Interventional Radiology, and Medical Director of Digital Health Care Integration. Dr. Hofmann has discussed the National Daily Health Survey on the news outlets listed below.
