Texas Syndromic Surveillance (TxS2) Use Cases and Success Stories

Texas Syndromic Surveillance (TxS2) is the statewide syndromic surveillance system for Texas hosted by the Texas Department of State Health Services. 

For TxS2 to be useful, the data within the system should be used by public health officials. Because of this, only DSHS staff, LHD staff, and hospital infection preventionists should use the system.

Sharing the experiences of partners throughout the state is a great way to show how important syndromic surveillance is. These syndromic surveillance activities and success stories from partners across the state are shown below.

DSHS is looking for syndromic surveillance use cases for both day-to-day surveillance and for unexpected events such as hurricanes or disease outbreaks in order to have new data queries. New use cases will be added when they are ready. 

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