Hospital Admissions by Race/Ethnicity
- Test results data come from the Electronic Clinical Laboratory Reporting System (ECLRS), a NYSDOH database that contains reported results from all the labs testing samples from New York State residents. Starting on September 20, 2020, these data also include pooled/batch tests reported by institutions of higher education.
- New admissions and total hospitalization data come from the Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS). Hospitals are required to complete this survey Monday through Friday and data reflects information reported by hospitals through the survey each day. These data include NYS resident and non-NYS resident hospitalizations.
- Health care facilities pause COVID-19 data submission through the Health Electronic Response Data System (HERDS) during weekends and certain holidays. Therefore, the dashboard will show no data for those dates. The first reporting date thereafter will contain those data and estimated 7-day averages are provided for all days.
- Due to small population sizes at the regional level, hospital admission rates for American Indians / Alaskan Natives are only available statewide.
