NEVADA (KTNV) — The Nevada Hospital Association will change the way data it obtains and reports about Nevada hospitals regarding COVID-19 patients.
The statewide trade association that represents Nevada's hospitals, health-related agencies and organizations, said the changes will start on July 13 and is based on an announcement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“Nevada hospitals have been diligent in reporting information to state and federal agencies as well as Gov. Sisolak and his team,” Bill M. Welch, president of the Nevada Hospital Association, said. “The reporting requests from HHS are substantial. As we adjust to the new daily data reports, there may be delays.”
The changes are said to be significant and fulfill the agency’s request for daily data reporting on bed capacity, utilization, and personal protective equipment.
Allied with the American Hospital Association, the NHA has itself as an independent organization headquartered in Reno.
