HCSIS Bit on Improved Data Access
November 1, 2002

This HCSIS Bit comes to you via the Office of Mental Retardation and Jeanine Zlockie. It is a response to providers' requests for data that they can effectively access and use in their organizations.

Effective October 31, the data extract for Incident Management will include all incidents in which the Incident Report is finalized. Previous to this change the data extract included only those incidents that were closed; meaning the Regional or BSOF (for state centers) Management Review was finalized. This enhancement will give providers more inclusive data, as the extract is no longer contingent on the county and region/BSOF doing the management review.

With the release of this enhancement, Access database templates that have been developed based on the design of previous extracts may need to be modified to accommodate this change.
