Texas Syndromic Surveillance (TxS2) Use Cases and Success Stories

The Texas Department of State Health Services hosts TxS2, which is the statewide syndromic surveillance system. 

Experienced public health officials throughout the state must view and analyze the data within the system for TxS2 to be valuable. As such, DSHS employees, LHD officials, and hospital infection preventionists have system access. It is important to share the accomplishments of partners throughout the state and to show stakeholders the benefits and usefulness of syndromic surveillance. Highlighted below are syndromic surveillance activities and success stories from partners across the state.

In addition, DSHS reviews syndromic surveillance use cases for both day-to-day, routine surveillance and for unexpected events such as hurricanes or transmission of new viruses to provide standard and suggested data queries. Additional information is added below as it is available. 

Please contact DSHS at  syndromic.surveillance@dshs.texas.gov if you have questions or recommendations regarding use cases or would like to share your syndromic surveillance activities and success stories.
