GNYHA to Incorporate Key DOH Critical Asset Survey Data Elements into Sit Stat Platform

July 13, 2021

To enhance information sharing, GNYHA has arranged with the New York State Department of Health (DOH) to make visible key data elements from the Critical Asset Survey (CAS) in GNYHA’s Sit Stat platform. All New York State hospitals are expected to update the CAS at least semiannually and upon changes to assets noted in the survey. Incorporation of key CAS data elements into Sit Stat will improve data alignment and enhance the completeness of facility data in Sit Stat without additional data entry burdens on facilities. Below is further information about this data integration process.

Sit Stat Background

GNYHA’s Sit Stat platform is a comprehensive, web-based information sharing and situational awareness tool designed to enhance preparedness and response capabilities at the facility, health system, and regional level. Sit Stat houses key information about each participating facility—including key contacts, services, and capabilities—within the Resource Detail View.

Giving GNYHA Permission to Access These Data

Hospitals and health systems that participate in Sit Stat are required to complete a Data Access Form to permit GNYHA to access and display the identified CAS data elements for their respective facility. Key data elements from the CAS will be displayed in the Sit Stat system to all participating organizations, including other hospitals and key response agencies. All hospitals are encouraged to review the attached list of data elements to be included in the Sit Stat platform before submitting the Data Request Form. We ask that participating hospitals and health systems submit the required form by July 30.

Data Updates

Please note, hospitals will NOT be able to update data elements sourced via the CAS in Sit Stat. Any updates to CAS data elements MUST be provided directly within the New York State DOH HERDS CAS survey in the Health Commerce System. GNYHA will request periodic data reports from DOH to ensure data in Sit Stat is up to date.
