Our COVID-19 Related Funds

COVID-19 Research and Treatment

OU Health Sciences Center and OU Medicine physicians and researchers are implementing new treatment processes and protocols, as well as developing new vaccines for COVID-19. Funding is needed for the operation of clinical trials, personnel to run studies, and the purchase of instrumentation and equipment. Enhanced lab testing equipment will allow for not only faster test results, but also running a higher volume of tests at one time. Research funding costs 40 cents for every federal dollar – philanthropic gifts supporting clinical trials and the purchase of technology and supplies are crucial to fast-tracking treatment research. COVID-19 research efforts will include vaccine development, medications and treatments, data collection and predictive modeling, and public health interventions.Your contribution will assist in fast tracking COVID-19 research through the support of clinical trials, personnel to run studies, equipment and more.

Medical Supplies Fund

Medical supplies, including personal protective equipment (PPE), and machines are essential for treatment and alleviating patients’ pain and suffering.

  • Urgent equipment needs for ICU preparedness total $480,000 including the purchase of powerful remote monitoring technology that will allow our ICU intensivists, respiratory therapists and ICU nurses to efficiently monitor all COVID+ patients on ventilators and cardiac monitors from outside the patient room. It also includes the purchase of a hydrogen peroxide vaporization system that would be used to perform mass sterilization of respirator masks ($50,000). An estimated $3.86 million will be required to provide a 6-month supply of PPE, including masks, gowns, gloves, goggles, face shields and other supplies, to meet the needs of our medical professionals and healthcare support staff to keep them safe while they treat patients.
  • Telemedicine will allow OU Medicine to examine and treat both COVID-positive and non-COVID patient populations virtually to ensure the safety and health of our healthcare workforce is maximized. The expansion of this program will cost $550,000 and includes the purchase of 200 iPads, iPods and software to conduct virtual visits, the ability to send a clinician to a patient’s home to monitor their COVID-19 symptoms and connect the patient with a provider, and the ability for providers to remotely monitor ICU patients in the hospital. Telehealth also allows for our patients to connect with loved ones that are unable to stay with them in the hospital due to visitation restrictions.
  • Operating costs for a mobile ER total an estimated $280,000, which includes the purchase and rental of triage tents and the cost to operate the mobile ER with additional providers and medical personnel.
