Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

As of 2:00PM on Thursday July 11, 2013, HERDS has been activated for select healthcare facilities in the MARO region to complete the e-FINDS Equipment POC (Point of Contact) Survey.  (The facilities who will receive this first shipment have been contacted via email notification. The shipments of equipment are being prioritized based on risk and eventually every provider will receive their equipment.)   NYSDOH is using this data collection to identify the primary POC for healthcare facilities to receive the upcoming shipment of e-FINDS equipment.

To access the survey, log onto the HCS system, click on Applications, Click on “N” and then click on the Nursing Home Surveillance and Reporting System (HERDS), click on the Data Entry tab and choose the “eFINDS Equipment POC survey” in the drop down box under “Please select a survey.”   Directions to access the survey are also available on the HERDS Main Menu and additional information - including contact info for support - can be found within the survey form.  This survey should be Completed and Submitted by COB on Friday July 19, 2013.
