COVID-19 Hospital Data Posted

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently posted reports on its HHS Protect Public Data Hub on the completeness of hospitals reporting COVID-19 daily data to the agency. As SDAHO previously shared, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an interim final rule requiring hospitals to report COVID-19 data as requested by HHS. Early this month, CMS followed up with additional guidance on how it would enforce this requirement.  The reports reflect data in HHS Protect that hospitals have submitted using one of HHS’ approved COVID-19 data reporting mechanisms, including the HHS TeleTracking portal and reports to their states.

The hospital data coverage reports include:

  • the percentage of mandatory fields reported;
  • the number of days from the preceding week reported at 100%;
  • whether a hospital is required to report on Wednesdays only;
  • and each required field with the number of days that specific field was reported for the week.

The reports are expected to be refreshed once per week, and reflect data submitted by hospital from the previous Friday to Thursday. Relatedly, HHS posted a report showing the percentage of hospitals in each state and territory reporting one or more of the required COVID-19 data elements.  To date, South Dakota’s 49 required hospitals are meeting 100% of the reporting requirements on the HHS Protect site.  Congratulations to the South Dakota hospitals for meeting this requirement!

For information on the most recent changes to the daily data reporting requirements for hospitals, see the AHA’s Oct. 6 Special Bulletin.
