July 16, 2020

On July 16, 2020, NYHealth hosted a webinar on an innovative, community-based health screening tool for tracking COVID-19.

Currently, nearly 5% of the population in a 13-county region surrounding Rochester has tested positive for COVID-19. Until wide-scale testing becomes a reality, a consortium of health systems and local health departments has developed an early identification tool, ROC COVID-19, to establish a baseline for, track symptoms of, and identify hot spots related to COVID-19.

Dr. Michael Hasselberg, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical Nursing, and Co-Director of the University of Rochester Health Lab, discussed ROC COVID-19, how it is designed to engage the community, and the potential for technology and data to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the region and elsewhere in New York State.
