 CRMO Foundation Patient Powered Registry

An essential goal of the foundation is to create an environment where families have a greater ability to understand and participate in CRMO research. A patient registry is a fundamental component of organizing the community and working together with researchers.

After exploring several registry options, the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford (CoRDS), a division of Sanford Health, was chosen due to its dedication to rare disease research and the functionality of the platform. CoRDS supports and enables rare disease communities to build registries and can connect registrants with researchers. The goal is to assist scientists asking fundamental questions about the disease and enabling those in translational and clinical research areas with clinical trial development.


The global CRMO community is invited to sign up and participate. This will enable the foundation to gather critical information about the disease and its progression through a natural history study.




  Registry Highlights

-The participant is assigned a Global Unique Identifier (GUID) that enables deidentification of the data when shared with approved researchers to protect patient’s privacy.

-The deidentified data will be shared with researchers with approval from the foundation and Sanford’s Institutional Review Board.

-The registry is on as an official natural history study and it follows the NIH guidelines and policies for patient registries.

-The participant owns his/her own personal data and can withdraw from the registry at any time.

-There is no cost to participate.

-The CRMO Foundation is building a disease specific natural history questionnaire that will be available to all participates.

-Survey results and research funded by the CRMO Foundation will be regularly shared with participants.
