HHS Announces Changes to Covid-19 Daily Data Reporting Process Effective July 15

HHS announced that as of Wednesday, July 15, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Covid-19 module will no longer be an option for hospitals to fulfill the agency’s request for daily data reporting on bed capacity, utilization, personal protective equipment (PPE), and in-house laboratory testing data.

Instead, HHS is asking hospitals to use one of these four options to report that information:

  • If your state has assumed reporting responsibility, submit all data to your state each day and your state will submit on your behalf. Your state can provide you with a certification if they are authorized to submit on your behalf.
  • Submit data to TeleTracking™. All instructions about the data submission are on that site and the new and updated fields will be ready as of July 15.
  • Authorize your health information technology (IT) vendor or other third party to share information directly with HHS.
  • Publish to the hospital or facility’s website in a standardized format, such as schema.org.

For additional details about these options, please see page 9 in HHS’s updated guidance. This information is also posted to NABH’s Covid-19 resources page.
