NYS Sepsis Data Collection Portal Secondary User Permissions Update

Dear Colleague,


The New York State Sepsis Care Improvement Initiative is announcing updates to the user permissions functionality on the sepsis portal, effective immediately.


All confirmed Primary Users will retain existing permissions. This includes the ability to submit cases, attest to zero cases, request deletions, and view reports on the portal for their designated hospital group.


Existing permissions for some Secondary Users are changing:


  • Secondary users at hospital groups with more than one facility must manually be granted permissions by their hospital group’s Primary User. This process must be completed for all secondary users whose facility is part of a multi-facility hospital group, including secondary users who have previously submitted cases or deletion requests using the portal.
  • Secondary Users at facilities which are part of a hospital group containing only one facility will retain access to the same portal functionality by default.

For more information about hospital groups and detailed instructions on how Primary Users can grant Secondary Users permissions for their hospital groups, please see the ‘User Permissions’ section of the updated User Access Guide. The updated User Access Guide will be also be made available on the Education and Training Materials next Tuesday. For a walkthrough of the instructions outlined in the User Access Guide, please attend the next Coding Collaborative Webinar on Wednesday June 7th at 9 AM. The dial-in information can be found below.
