In addition to SARS-CoV-2 viral testing, insights regarding local risk trends are essential to prepare and adapt in order to slow the spread of the virus. hc1 recently announced the CV19 Lab Testing Dashboard™ powered by hc1 is now equipped with side-to-side views of the hc1 Local Risk Index™ (LRI), COVID-19 viral and antibody testing rates, as well as anonymized test results and key demographic filters. The enhancements give professionals more of the CV19 insights they need down to the sub-county level.
The unique data sets are easily identifiable through clear color schemes that separate viral and antibody testing insights. Visualization of a seven-day “Rolling Trend in Percent Detected” graph and “Detected Rate Trend by Age Group” clearly present the rate of change in test results allowing viewers to easily gauge the intensity of positive test surges.
“Communities across the U.S. are struggling to access detailed insight at the hyperlocal, sub-county level. Business and community health leaders need live insight for their communities to design and execute effective response strategies,” said Brad Bostic, CEO of hc1. “hc1 is addressing this critical need through cv19dashboard.org with rich, hyperlocal insight into emerging infection hotspots, and the prevalence of antibodies, in order to keep vulnerable workers and community members safe.”
As communities begin to re-open, easily accessible, and understandable insights available through CV19Dashboard.org will remove the uncertainty of unidentified changes in viral and antibody test results. Access to the CV19 Lab Testing Dashboard is free for public health, public policy, healthcare, and laboratory decision-makers who need hyperlocal insights into COVID-19 testing rates, positivity rates, and risk of increasing viral activity.
