NYSDOH Sepsis-COVID Pediatric Data Quality Reports Release – 09/06/2022

Dear Colleague,

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is pleased to announce the release of Pediatric Data Quality Reports for the New York State Sepsis Care Improvement Initiative. Pediatric Quarterly Reports will be released shortly.

The Pediatric Data Quality Report, which is in the same format as the Adult Data Quality Report released earlier this year, covers discharges from December 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. The report will be published on Tableau Webserver, Tableau’s online platform, on September 6, 2022.

Purpose of Data Quality Reports:

• Provide actionable information to hospitals to identify and address data quality issues
• Allow hospitals to review, validate issues, and correct or supplement data as necessary
• Ensure data quality for hospital-level risk adjustment and the NYSDOH Public Report

Timeline for Correcting Data as Necessary:

1. First Data Correction Deadline: September 28, 2022

Between the report launch on September 6, 2022 and close of business on September 28, 2022 hospitals may make corrections to their 2021 Pediatric data.

2. First Data Refresh: October 19, 2022

The first data refresh will be posted by IPRO on October 19, 2022. This refresh provides an opportunity for hospitals to review the corrected data and identify further corrections that are needed. Any data corrections made by close of business on September 28, 2022 will be included in this refresh.

3. Final Correction Deadline: November 2, 2022

Between October 19, 2022 and close of business on November 2, 2022 hospitals may make final corrections to 2021 Pediatric data. After this deadline, the data will be used for the annual public report and no further corrections to data from Calendar Year 2021 Pediatric data will be permitted

As outlined above, hospitals have two opportunities to correct their 2021 Pediatric data and can get started with initial corrections immediately upon release of Data Quality Reports.
