We are excited to launch the first issue of TriCore Reference Laboratories’ bi-monthly Infectious Disease Bulletin. Hopefully, you will find the information interesting and useful for your practice.
TriCore's laboratory data tells an important story about individuals and populations. We provide clarity for patients, healthcare providers, and the public about New Mexico’s health through the lens of our laboratory data. TriCore serves New Mexico’s three largest hospital systems, as well as physician groups, and independent providers statewide. While we do not have all of NM’s respiratory infection data, TriCore’s sizable and diverse footprint gives us a comprehensive longitudinal data set, allowing us to provide clarity regarding New Mexico’s current position as we respond to the pandemic, as well as helping to ensure a safe and healthy population.
This dashboard provides a view of the current week's positive respiratory tests performed at TriCore Laboratories. The report is updated weekly on Wednesdays. The two week trend is an algorithm used to predict if the case counts are increasing (↑) decreasing (↓) or level (−) over the previous two weeks. The Respiratory infection by age depicts the distribution of the positive tests by age group for the current week. (Trends are not reported for COVID-19).
This interactive dashboard shows the respiratory infection trends for the current week, infection by year, infection by age group, respiratory infections over time and influenza subtype distribution. These charts offer you the ability to select a date range of interest and one or several Respiratory Groups and age groups to view data over time. The two week trend is an algorithm used to predict if the case counts are increasing (↑) decreasing (↓) or level (−) over the previous two weeks. (Trends are not reported for COVID-19).
This interactive dashboard shows respiratory infection by county* and week of recorded infection. These charts offer you the ability to interact with them by selecting the date range, respiratory virus, county, and age group. You can see TriCore’s test volume and positivity rate by respiratory infection and county results for each of the respiratory groups.
*only specimens with a valid NM address are included in the county summary.
