Tracing Health

Tracing Health was launched in response to the public health emergency pandemic of COVID-19. Our services include contact tracing and scientific support to counties and local health departments. Our highly-trained employees counsel contacts and connect them to community resources for successful implementation of quarantine.

Washington County, Oregon

The Tracing Health model involves small teams of contact tracers each working with a Resource Coordinator who can provide people in isolation or quarantine with connections to food banks, mental health services, visiting nurses, and other community programs. The model is designed to be quickly scalable and able to pivot to hotspots. In addition to contact tracing, data analysts, disease surveillance and outbreak investigations, the initiative connects individuals to the resources they need.
