NHSN COVID-19 Data Reporting Assistance for Nursing Homes
HSAG can help!
HSAG is available to assist nursing homes in reporting accurate COVID-19 vaccine data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Common challenges that potentially lead to CMS fines and inaccurately reported public data include misunderstanding COVID-19 reporting requirements and vaccine up-to-date definitions, inadequate vaccination data collection processes, and lack of access to the NHSN and statewide vaccine registries.
