DOH Meeting with Associations – January 2014

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

On January 6, DOH surveillance staff met with association staff for our regularly scheduled meeting. Topics discussed included: Hep C Screening Public Health Law, IDR and SOD turnaround times, QIS update and recent Immediate Jeopardy citations.  Minutes for the meeting are attached.  This year the schedule for these meetings will change from monthly to every other month per DOH’s request.  NYSHFA suggested the alternate months be used to focus on key issues  and requested that any data requested or questions not answered from a meeting would be provided in a timely fashion after that meeting, not waiting until the next scheduled meeting and DOH agreed. Our next in person meeting is scheduled for March 6, 2014.
