Strategy for Skilled Nursing Facilities: Data Management and Predictive Analytics
Reliable, quality data related to the impact of COVID-19 in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) is critical for the Center for Health Care Quality (CHCQ) to ensure that SNFs meet safety guidelines, have adequate resources, and protect residents' lives during the pandemic. CHCQ uses daily SNF COVID-19 reporting data to track and respond to urgent needs, and integrates this data with high-risk priority level indicators to project the spread and severity of COVID-19 in SNFs across California.
CHCQ links the daily SNF reporting and urgent needs entries into a live geographic map dashboard that District Offices use to monitor the needs of SNFs in real time. This allows staff to reach out to SNFs regarding resource requests, send a team onsite, or make a referral to the CHCQ Healthcare-Associated Infections strike team.
Provided below are the SNF Urgent Needs daily reports. Being listed on these reports does not imply wrongdoing on the part of the facility.
