COVID-19 Guidance for Hospital Reporting and FAQs
For Hospitals, Hospital Laboratory, and Acute Care Facility Data
Reporting
Updated: August 10, 2022
Implementation Dates:
Fields made federally inactive, and psychiatric & rehabilitation hospital changes: August 24, 2022
Therapeutic data reporting to the Healthcare Provider Ordering Portal (HPOP): November 2, 2022
Note: For ease of navigation, all changes as of this August 10, 2022 guidance have been highlighted with
[CHANGE] and highlighted in orange.
Since March 29, 2020, the U.S. government has been collecting data from hospitals and states to
understand health care system stress, capacity, capabilities, and the number of patients hospitalized due to
COVID-19. As the COVID-19 response continues to evolve, Federal needs for data are also evolving. In
an effort to reduce burden while maximizing efficiency, the Federal government continues to evaluate
data needs.
All data collected is driven by two core principles: 1) the data must drive action and/or 2) the data must
serve as a surveillance indicator for U.S. health care system stress, capacity, capability, and/or patient
safety. Significant consideration was also given to align with state, tribal, local, and territorial (STLT)
needs wherever possible, and to minimize system changes and/or disruptions.
The following details the data elements, cadence, and how the data are being used in the federal response.
Appendix A includes a change log for comparison to previous hospital reporting guidance.

Who is responsible for reporting, and when is reporting required?
Hospitals are responsible for reporting the information to the Federal government. Facilities should report
at the individual hospital level, even if hospitals share a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
(CMS) Certification Number (CCN).
We recognize that some health care systems choose to report for all facilities in their network from a
central corporate location.
We also recognize that many states currently collect this information from the hospitals. Therefore,
hospitals may be relieved from reporting directly to the Federal government if they receive a written
release from the state indicating that the state is certified and will collect the data from the hospitals and
take over the hospital’s Federal reporting responsibilities. STLT partners may have unique reporting
requirements either related to or independent of the Federal reporting requirements. Facilities are
encouraged to work with their relevant STLT partners to ensure complete reporting.
To be considered “certified”, states must first receive written certification from their Administration for
Strategic Preparedness 1 (ASPR) Regional Administrator affirming that the state has an established,
functioning data reporting stream to the federal government that is delivering all of the information shown

Formerly the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response

in the table below at the appropriate daily frequency. States that take over reporting must provide these
data, regardless of whether they are seeking immediate federal assistance. States that are certified are
listed on healthdata.gov.

Cadence and Facility Type
Hospitals, with the exception of psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals, are required to report seven days
a week but, where possible and pending further direction from their state or jurisdiction, are encouraged
to report weekend data on the following Monday with the data backdated to the appropriate date.
[CHANGE] As of this August 10, 2022 guidance, per Secretary discretion, psychiatric and rehabilitation
facilities must submit data once annually for the week prior to meet federal reporting requirements. This
may evolve based on the needs of the national response. See below information and Appendix D for
details.
All hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting
meets STLT needs.
For items that are reported once per week, it is critical that the data are reported on Wednesday in order to
count towards compliance requirements.

*We recognize that STLT partners may have reporting requirements related to or independent of the Federal
reporting requirements. Facilities are encouraged to work with relevant STLT partners to ensure complete
reporting for all partners. All hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to
ensure reporting meets STLT needs.

Reporting Flexibilities
We recognize that reporting requires staffing resources and have implemented the following flexibilities.
All hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting
meets STLT needs.
Holidays: Pending further direction from their state or jurisdiction, hospitals are not expected to report to
the Federal government on holidays unless otherwise noted; however, hospitals are requested
to report the data elements within 24 hours of the holiday, backdated to the appropriate date.
All hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting
meets STLT needs.
Weekends: Where possible and pending further direction from their state or jurisdiction, hospitals are not
expected to report on weekends; however, hospitals are requested to report the data elements
within 24 hours of the weekend, backdated to the appropriate date. All hospitals are asked to
follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting meets STLT needs.
Emergencies: Hospitals experiencing additional natural and/or manmade disasters such as wildfires,
hurricanes, cyber incidents, flooding, etc. can be placed in emergency suspense. Facilities
placed in emergency suspense are not required to report COVID-19 data for the duration
of the suspense. Backdated reporting is not required after the incident is resolved.

How to Report
Hospitals should report information to the Federal government through one of the methods below 2.
Options are provided to best meet facility needs. Facilities should report at the individual hospital level,
even if hospitals share a CCN. To view the most recent templates, view the Templates and Technical
Materials page located on healthdata.gov. Additional information on the template crosswalk with the
guidance is also available in Appendix F.

through your Health
IT Vendor or Other
Third-Party

Description
If your state has assumed reporting responsibility, submit all data to your state
each day, and your state will submit on your behalf. Your state can provide you
with a certification if they are authorized to submit on your behalf. States are
able to submit data via any of the below mechanisms (submitting data to
TeleTracking, centralized reporting system, and/or health IT vendors or another
third-party).
All instructions for submitting data to TeleTracking are available on the
TeleTracking Portal, located at https://teletracking.protect.hhs.gov. To become
a user in the portal, respond to the validation email sent to your administrator,
and visit the TeleTracking Portal, following the instructions on how to become
a user. Each facility is able to have up to four users for both data entry and
visual access to aggregated data in the platform. Users will be validated by the
platform.
Centralized reporting is available for entities reporting data on behalf of
multiple facilities. If you are an individual hospital, hospital organization or
state reporting many facilities, use this template for TeleTracking.
Individual hospitals and/or hospital organizations may provide authorization to
a third-party vendor for Health IT, emergency management, situational
awareness, and/or other provider for sharing data directly with HHS on behalf
of the facility.

Note: Specific information is requested through different systems and mechanisms, such as therapeutics
data through HPOP and testing data through public health mechanisms.
Troubleshooting & Operational Status Changes
Hospitals with name changes and/or changes in operational status should contact their state public health
department or contact the HHS Protect Service Desk ([email protected]) for Federal
COVID-19 reporting purposes. Newly established hospitals and/or hospitals with new ownership are
granted a 30-day reporting exemption to establish reporting mechanisms and protocols.
Hospitals that encounter reporting challenges or have questions should contact the HHS Protect Service
Desk ([email protected]).

Data Elements
The following data elements help the Federal government understand health care system stress, capacity,
capabilities, and the number of patients hospitalized due to COVID-19. Data elements may be required or

optional and may be associated with a specific cadence. The purpose of each data element and how it
informs the Federal response is in Appendix B.
Required Data Elements: These data elements are requested from facilities to ensure a complete data
submission. Any associated Federal compliance is evaluated on required data elements only. Some data
elements are requested at each reporting interval (i.e., daily), while others are requested weekly.
Optional Data Elements: Hospital reporting on these fields is determined at a jurisdiction and/or facility
level. Hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their STLT government on reporting these fields;
otherwise, reporting is at the discretion of the facility for the purposes of federal reporting. 3 These data
elements are helpful to the federal response, and may be used for additional analysis and planning
purposes.
Federally Inactive Data Elements: These data elements have been made inactive for the federal data
collection and are no longer required at the federal level. Hospitals are asked to follow the direction of
their STLT government on reporting these fields, as some jurisdictions may choose to keep certain data
elements as part of the collection based on their needs. Note: Hospitals are able to continue reporting
data on these fields- the fields are not being removed from templates.
Daily Data Elements: Hospitals are requested to provide information on these data elements on a daily
basis; however, hospitals are encouraged to back-date weekend and holiday data.
Weekly Data Elements: Hospitals are requested to provide information on these data elements once per
week on Wednesdays. Weekly data elements must be provided on Wednesday to count towards
compliance requirements. If a holiday falls on a Wednesday, data may be reported on the next business
day.
The data elements are listed in the table below by data field ID number and grouped by category:
Metadata, Capacity, Supply, Influenza, Therapeutic, Therapeutic Placeholder, and Healthcare Worker
Vaccination. The data element description, whether the field is required or optional, and the requested
cadence are indicated. A list of data elements grouped by cadence and whether they are required or
optional is available in Appendix C.
Changes to data elements are also indicated throughout the document where appropriate, in addition to the
change log in Appendix A.

Surveillance System. As a reminder, CMS rule CMS-1752-F and CMS-1762-F requires hospital worker vaccination rates to be reported on a regular basis into
the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) as a quality measure beginning on October 1, 2021. NHSN has provided additional information and
resources on the measures being collected. The below vaccination data elements below have been made inactive for federal collection and do NOT meet

[CHANGE] Therapeutic Data Elements
[CHANGE] On November 2, 2022 therapeutic data reporting will be transitioned to the Health Partner Ordering Portal (HPOP). HPOP is an
ordering portal for requesting COVID-19 therapeutic products provided at no cost by the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response
within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. HPOP is used to order COVID-19 therapeutic products allocated by HHS/ASPR.
Further information will be provided on therapeutic reporting transition to HPOP, with the therapeutic team determining reporting needs
accordingly. While therapeutic data will no longer included in Unified Hospital Data Surveillance System reporting starting November 2, 2022,
therapeutic data remains important to the federal response. This information is needed for tracking purposes and strategic decision making. All
hospitals should follow reporting requirements through HPOP. Questions on therapeutic data reporting can be directed to [email protected]
and [email protected]

Testing Data Elements: Hospitals Performing COVID-19 Testing Using an In-House Laboratory
Laboratories are required to report to state and local public health authorities in accordance with applicable state or local law. Additionally, the
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act section 18115 and its implementation guidance require every laboratory to report
every test it performs to detect SARS-CoV-2 or to diagnose a possible case of COVID-19 (e.g., viral, serology). On June 4, 2020, additional HHS
guidance was issued that required specific data elements to be collected and reported. Under the new guidance, testing data should be sent to state
health departments, which will then de-identify the data and report them to the CDC. This new guidance is effective August 1, 2020.
As of June 20, 2021, all states are electronically reporting line-level de-identified testing data, including testing elements from hospital inhouse laboratories, using existing public health mechanisms. For this reason, hospitals should not report testing information directly to
HHS unless state reporting changes.
20

For additional information and answers to frequent questions on testing data, please visit the CDC website detailing how to report COVID-19
laboratory data. Hospitals are also encouraged to contact their state health department, or email the CDC testing team ([email protected]).

Hospital Data Usage & Access
Hospital data is collated, manipulated, and visualized at the Federal level in two primary locations: HHS Protect and HHS Protect Public.
HHS Protect serves as an internal hub for data analysis and visualization, allowing integration of additional datasets from other sources. Federal
decision-makers and analysts can access the data through HHS Protect directly, or indirectly through various generated reports. A variety of
Federal teams use the data as detailed in the above data element table. In addition to Federal partners, state, tribal, local, and territorial partners
also have access to the data through HHS Protect. Tribal partners are encouraged to work with the Indian Health Service (IHS) and respective state
partners to define geographical access accordingly. HHS regional staff, ASPR regional staff and/or Indian Health Service (IHS) staff serve as
HHS Protect sponsors for respective state, tribe, and territory users. Local partners also have access to the data, working in conjunction with their
respective state to define geographical access accordingly. State HHS Protect users serve as sponsors for local partners. Organizations, such as
hospital associations, can be provided access to the data if granted written permission by the state and/or an individual reporting hospital facility.
To inquire about an HHS Protect account, email the HHS Protect Service Desk ([email protected]).
Information within HHS Protect is secured through robust usage and access controls. All users must be sponsored to gain access to HHS Protect
by the mechanisms mentioned above. All data have accompanying sharing and use agreements, specifying how and with whom the information
can be exported and shared.
HHS Protect Public serves as a fully public data hub, providing aggregated content and dashboards. HHS Protect Public contains aggregated
subsets of the hospital data, providing transparency for all stakeholders. HHS Protect Public can be accessed at: https://protect-public.hhs.gov/.

Hospital Data Quality & Errors
Quality data helps to ensure informed decision-making based on accurate information. Federal partners regularly conduct data quality checks, and
may contact state and territorial partners if further information is needed. Federal partners will not contact facilities directly unless explicitly
granted permission by the state and/or in extraordinary circumstances.
Hospital data liaisons work collaboratively with state and territorial partners to increase transparency, as well as verify and resolve any data
challenges. Importantly, data liaisons work specifically with data. Operational needs and resource requests for personnel, supplies, technical
assistance, and/or other needs follow all normal processes and should NOT be directed to hospital data liaisons.
Users who identify any errors in their data are encouraged to contact the HHS Protect Service Desk ([email protected]).

Therapeutic placeholder field overview: Minor non-substantive edits to wording.
Vaccination field overview: Noted CMS rule CMS-1752-F and CMS-1762-F which requires hospital worker vaccination rates to
be reported on a regular basis into the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) as a quality measure beginning on October 1,
2021. Clarified that vaccination data elements remain optional and do not meet the requirements of the CMS rule. Condensed
other description information.
41: Removed note on vaccine allocations.
All subset fields: Clarified subset relationships, which can also be found in visual form with Appendix E.

Laboratory Data Element Changes
While the laboratory data elements themselves, as well as the guidance on how to report have not changed, the latest guidance clarifies that all
states and territories are now reporting line-level de-identified data electronically and hospitals should stop reporting directly to HHS unless
circumstances change.
Since hospitals no longer need to report the information directly and all details and frequently asked questions are readily available on the CDC
website for how to report laboratory data, all of the text describing laboratory data elements was removed from the guidance. Hospitals are still
required to report the information to their state through existing public health mechanisms.

Narrative and FAQ Changes

Purpose
Metadata ensures data can be identified and matched with the appropriate facility.
Logic is incorporated into TeleTracking (and should be incorporated into other systems)
so facilities do not need to answer metadata questions unless there are changes.

Serving as an additional metadata component, HHS ID is a unique facility-level
identifier which is more granular than CCN. Not having the HHS ID in the dataset has
caused some data submissions to be mismatched.

Seasonal influenza can result in substantial burden on hospitals. These data elements fill
a critical gap in the national influenza surveillance system by providing hospitalization
data from all states and territories. These data will be used to improve situational
awareness of severe respiratory illness, make forecasts and model influenza impact,
help direct resources to address the potential increased impact of flu and COVID-19 cocirculation and inform guidance and recommendations for public health professionals,
clinicians, and the general public. Understanding influenza hospitalizations and
admissions can also help to understand potential strains on the PPE supply chain.

Appendix D: Additional Information by Field Type
HHS ID
HHS IDs are specified and maintained for the purposes of providing granular facility level identifiers for the purposes of this COVID-19 Guidance
for Hospital Reporting. HHS IDs provide more granular information than CCN, as HHS ID references the individual facility level. HHS IDs for
each facility are published and listed in the “HHS IDs” file hosted on healthdata.gov.

NICU Exclusions & Inclusions
NICU and nursery beds are included in some fields in the collection while being excluded from others, unless they are designated for COVID-19
positive pediatric patients. This is based on several factors including making minimal changes to existing definitions, considering analysis of this
data collection combined with additional data sources, and reducing the number of new questions where feasible. The questions allow for
epidemiologic tracking of pediatric patients regardless of age or location in the hospital, COVID-19 burden analysis for specific areas of the
hospital, ability to more granularly track occupancy, and where needed potential to infer NICU occupancy. A diagram of capacity and occupancy
fields with additional notes on NICU fields is available in Appendix E.
NICU and nursery beds are included in:
•

Overall capacity and occupancy measures (fields 3a, 4a, 5a, and 6a)

•

Straight counts of pediatric patients who are hospitalized or admitted with COVID-19 regardless of age or location in the hospital (fields
10b, 18a, and 18c)

NICU and nursery beds are excluded in:
•

New pediatric capacity and occupancy measures (fields 3c, 4c, 5c, and 6c)

•

Measures of COVID-19 burden in pediatric ICUs (field 12c)

Additional Pediatric Reporting Clarifications
For facilities without beds designated specifically for adult or pediatric patients, it is ok to report pediatric capacity as zero up until the point when
there is a pediatric patient occupying a bed, in which case numbers for fields 3c, 4c, 5c, and 6c are asked to be reflective of hospitalized pediatric
patients.

Hospitalizations and Admissions
The number of new admissions and the total patients hospitalized should generally not be the same value.
39

•

Confirmed COVID-19 admissions are the number of new patients who were admitted to an inpatient bed on the previous calendar day
with confirmed COVID-19. This is a measure of incidence, or new patients coming into the hospital.

•

Total patients hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 are the current number of patients with confirmed COVID-19 occupying an
inpatient bed. This is a measure of prevalence, or current patients occupying a hospital bed.

If the values are reported such that the number of patients currently hospitalized are incorrectly reported as the number of new admissions, this can
cause the new admissions rate for the facility, county, and state to appear overinflated. Accuracy of these fields is important, as they are included
in a number of reports, dashboards, and datasets that are widely used by the public and the U.S. government.
A scenario example is provided below to assist in determining how to enter the data for these questions:
•

On 9/8/2021, facility A had 12 adult patients with confirmed COVID-19 occupying inpatient beds at the time of data entry. On the prior
day (9/7/2021), 3 new adult patients with confirmed COVID-19 were admitted to the facility.
o The facility should enter 12 for question #9b (12 total adult patients are hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 on 9/8/2021).
o The facility should enter 3 for question #17b (3 new adult patients with confirmed COVID-19 were admitted on the prior day).

Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 Definition
Do NOT include the following as “laboratory confirmed COVID-19”:
•

±Positive SARS-CoV-2 antigen test and negative SARS-CoV-2 NAAT (PCR).

Laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 positive includes:
•
•
•

Positive SARS-CoV-2 antigen test only [no other testing performed]
Positive SARS-CoV-2 NAAT (PCR) only [no other testing performed]
±Any other combination of SARS-CoV-2 NAAT (PCR) and/or antigen test(s) with at least one positive test.

± Include patient with serial viral test results only when the additional tests were collected within two calendar days of initial SARS-CoV-2 viral
test. Day of specimen collection is equal to day 1. Otherwise, only select the initial test method for Test Type. Tests in which specimens are
collected more than 2 calendar days apart should be considered separate tests.
Note: Several hospitals have asked for clarification on how long someone who has met the conditions for laboratory-confirmed COVID-19
remains a COVID-19 patient. We recognize that some hospitals and STLT partners have made internal definitions that have been used since
reporting began. For some, a COVID-19 patient remains a COVID-19 patient for the duration of their stay, regardless of length of stay. For
others, a COVID-19 patient stops being a COVID-19 patient after two weeks. For the purposes of reporting, hospitals are asked to please
continue to use definitions that they have used for reporting to date. For new hospitals who are starting to report, please defer first to the COVID40

19 patient definition used by your hospital system, health care coalition, hospital association, and/or STLT partner. If a definition has not been
previously determined, a default definition we suggest is for individuals to be counted as COVID-19 patients until they are no longer symptomatic
and are removed from COVID-19 isolation precautions.

Laboratory-Confirmed Influenza Virus Infection Definition
Laboratory confirmation includes detection of influenza virus infection through molecular tests (e.g., polymerase chain reaction, nucleic acid
amplification), antigen detection tests, immunofluorescence tests, and virus culture. For hospital reporting, laboratory-confirmed influenza is
defined as Influenza A and B [this includes their subtypes and lineages (e.g., A(H1N1), A(H3N2), B/Victoria, B/Yamagata)]. Parainfluenza and
Haemophilus Influenza should not be reported. A positive result in the prior 14 days whether completed as an inpatient or outpatient can be used
as the laboratory confirmation.

[CHANGE] Psychiatric & Rehabilitation Hospital Reporting
[CHANGE] As of this August 10, 2022 guidance, per Secretary discretion, psychiatric and rehabilitation facilities must submit data federally only
once on an annual basis which will go from October to October. This may evolve based on the needs of the national response. All hospitals are
asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting meets STLT needs.
•
•

As long as psychiatric & rehabilitation hospitals have reporting once since October 2021, psychiatric & rehabilitation hospital federal
reporting requirements through October 2022 are currently fulfilled.
Psychiatric & rehabilitation hospitals will be required to report once from October 1, 2022 to October 1, 2023.

When psychiatric & rehabilitation hospitals report, reporting will still occur once on a Wednesday, in exactly the same way as reporting to date.
The only change federally is the reporting cadence- instead of reporting federally every week, psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals will provide
the same snapshot once per year. The jurisdiction and/or hospital have discretion on which Wednesday during the October-October period the
facility will report on. All hospitals are asked to follow the direction of their state and jurisdiction to ensure reporting meets STLT needs.

Appendix E: Variable Relationships
Below is a simplified diagram of the relationships between variables 3a through 6c to help visually represent field subsets. Please note, we
recognize this is an oversimplification of bed types.

Appendix F: Template Mapping
The below table crosswalks the fields within the guidance with the data submission template. The CSV version of this file is available on the
Templates and Materials page of healthdata.gov. Note: The template has NOT changed beyond adding new fields at the end of the template to
minimize technical changes. All fields remain in the template regardless of status.
