Update on State Portal to Report Required COVID-19 Data to CDC – ALTSA: NH #2020-034

In Administrator letter # 020-032, RCS reported that the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) were working to build an electronic system that facilities could utilize to report the data. Although facilities can choose to report the data directly to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN, a subset of CDC), reporting through the state portal reduces the number of places facilities must report to. For those reporting data through the state portal, DOH will upload the data to NHSN. The purpose of this letter is to provide an update on the state COVID-19 reporting portal and to provide instructions to use the portal.
