NYSDOH Sepsis-COVID Adult Quarterly and Data Quality Report Refresh

Dear Colleague,

The New York State Sepsis Care Improvement Initiative refreshed the data within the associated Adult Data Quality and Quarterly Reports on June 6, 2022. This was done to ensure that the reports reflect all cases submitted by hospitals, particularly those that were submitted after the data submission deadlines. The refreshed reports include any corrections made to the data prior to June 6, 2022.  

All hospitals should review the current refreshed Data Quality Reports and make any necessary corrections by close of business on Thursday, July 7, 2022. If you have already reviewed the Quarterly and Data Quality Reports and are satisfied with the accuracy of the data reflected, you do not need to do anything further at this time.  

One further data refresh will be completed on Friday, July 22, 2022. This will provide an additional opportunity for hospitals to review the corrected data and identify further corrections that are needed.  Any data corrections made by close of business on Thursday, July 7, 2022 with be included in this refresh.

Between July 22, 2022 and close of business on Monday, August 8, 2022, hospitals may make final corrections to the data. After this deadline, the data will be used to determine risk-adjusted mortality rates for the annual public report and no further corrections to data from Calendar Year 2021 will be permitted.

Please visit the recorded webinar on how to interpret the Data Quality Reports and what action(s) to take if you need more information:
