The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) issued a policy bulletin dated May 12, 2017 regarding the requirement for providers to manually enter historical Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) into the Pennsylvania Web Infrastructure for Treatment Services (PA WITS) data system from September 1, 2015 through March 31, 2018. The bulletin includes the discussion of sanctions to providers for noncompliance.
This version of the PA WITS system is being implemented two months ahead of schedule for the purposes of collecting TEDS data since September 1, 2015. A live streaming webcast to kick off the first day of your access to PA WITS will be held on Monday, May 22, at 11:00 am. The webcast will be presented by DDAP project leaders covering important topics, including policy requirements, e-Training, and how to gain access. The webcast will be recorded and available for viewing at a later date. More information will be shared as it is received.
