Stay informed about COVID-19
Syndromic surveillance is another way that we can look for patterns of disease in our community. The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) use syndromic surveillance to monitor trends in disease, track outbreaks and evaluate how public health interventions are working. Currently, the DOH only looks at data from the Emergency Rooms across Washington State. Jefferson Healthcare is looking at all patients who have come through our hospital and primary care clinics, and are looking for patients with COVID-like illness or pneumonia-like illness. We are using the same definitions as the DOH. We are also watching for trends to see if our community is staying healthy during this pandemic.
We will be using this data to watch for any warning signs that illness is rising in our community. These data will be updated weekly. If you have questions about the data, please contact Amy Yaley at email@example.com
