  • Description:
    The FoodCORE performance metrics are a list of measurable activities covering diverse aspectsof outbreak response. These activities span from outbreak surveillance and detection through investigation, response, control, and prevention measures. Using the metrics*, each center provides data about the burden, timeliness, and completeness of foodborne disease activities related tothe key areas of activity. The rationale and intent of these metrics are for investigation activities for norovirus, other enteric disease pathogens, such as Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, or Giardia, and outbreaks of unknown etiology. Collectively, these are referred to as the NOU metrics, for norovirus, other etiologies, and unknown etiologies. Other etiologies are enteric illnesses with determined etiology that are not Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, Listeria, or norovirus. Unknown etiologies are enteric illness with no determined/identified etiology from case, product,or environmental testing to indicate the etiologic agent. This can be because no specimen orsample yielded an isolate or other positive result, and would also include investigations where no specimens or samples were collected.
