Upcoming Release of Adult Data Quality and Quarterly Reports for the New York State Sepsis Care Improvement Initiative

Dear Colleague,

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Adult Data Quality and Quarterly Reports for the New York State Sepsis Care Improvement Initiative.

The reports will cover data submission periods 1, 2, and 3 and cover discharges from December 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. The reports will be published on Tableau Webserver, Tableau’s online platform, and will be rolled out in multiple waves following a launch webinar.
Launch Webinar:

NYSDOH, in collaboration with IPRO, will be hosting the webinar to debut the new Tableau Webserver Data Quality and Quarterly Reports. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 1:00pm.
Please use the following link to register for the webinar:
The webinar will include information on how to access the reports, a demonstration of the reports, and present supporting materials like the user guide.
Please feel free to forward the link to others in your organization who will participate in reviewing the reports or to a colleague if you cannot attend. Following the webinar, we will send out the link to the recording and the supporting materials.
Accessing the Data Quality and Quarterly Reports:

Hospitals will be issued an institutional Tableau Webserver account to access the reports. The Primary User for the Sepsis Portal who has been approved by the hospital’s Chief Privacy/Security Officer will be the point person for the hospital’s institutional Tableau Webserver account. The institutional account login credential will be sent  from IPRO  to the Primary User for the Sepsis Portal and only the Primary User will be able to request a password reset.
Please review who your designated Primary User is in preparation for the launch of the reports. Hospitals can only have one designated Primary User at a time. If you would like to designate a different person as Primary User, your facility’s current Primary User can designate a new Primary User on the Users page of the Sepsis Portal. If your current Primary User is unable to designate a new Primary User, please submit a Helpdesk ticket copying your facility’s Chief Privacy/Security Officer. Please review your Primary User as soon as possible so that any changes can be made in time for the launch.

More information about requesting a new Primary User can also be found at:

If you have any questions, please submit a helpdesk ticket at
Thank you,

The NYSDOH Clinical Sepsis Team
