RCPA - Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association


Incident Management Orientation Materials Available
June 4, 2007

Letters from Deputy Secretary Gold have gone to all residential, foster care, and public children and youth agencies licensed under Title 55 Pa. Code Chapters 3800, 3700, and 3130 informing programs of the implementation of the Incident Management System. The target date for the big bang plan for statewide implementation is July. Upon implementation reportable incidents will remain unchanged, but the system of incident reporting to the state, region, and county will shift to the Internet-based Home and Community Services Information System (HCSIS). Forty child serving provider facilities in the northeast region are currently piloting the HCSIS incident reporting system.

Three key documents being used for agency orientation have been provided by the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) and are available for review from the links below:

Service providers are encouraged to review this material in preparation for the conversion of state required incident reporting to the HCSIS Incident Management System scheduled for the weeks ahead.
