Department: NYS Department of Health

Description: The New York Patient Occurrence Reporting and Tracking System (NYPORTS) is an adverse event reporting system implemented pursuant to New York State Public Health Law section 2805-l, Incident Reporting. An occurrence is an unintended adverse and undesirable development in an individual patient’s condition occurring in a hospital. This system is used by hospitals and clinics to meet their statutory reporting requirements.

The project encompasses three phases of effort to restructure and enhance an application to support the business requirements for the NYPORTS system. The first phase restructured and migrated the NYPORTS application to a supportable IT infrastructure in August 2015. A second phase included a redesign of the system to align with national standards established by the federal Department of Health and Human Services through its Agency for Healthcare Policy and Research (AHRQ), an effort to identify and define more complete NYPORTS business requirements, enhancement of the application to provide this functionality, and the addition of the capability to review the adverse events captured by the system. The third phase will address business requirements identified during the system redesign and the business needs analysis. These requirements include new reports, the ability to generate and print reports, extract capabilities for research and data sharing, and the ability to send and receive adverse event referrals. The ability of the Department to perform data analysis, share extracts with researchers and disseminate findings is a statutory requirement.

The Contractor will be responsible for the creation and maintenance of all project management deliverables with the input of both contract and DOH project team members. Examples of project management activities and responsibilities that will be required of the Contractor in this project include but are not limited to:
Coordinate the activities of the project teams.
Create, monitor and manage project plans, schedules, scope, risks, issues, costs, changes, and other project management artifacts.
Report project status.
Provide a focal point for issues and concerns raised by the Contractor team or the NYSDOH.
Manage Contractor system development tasks and project resources per priorities established by NYSDOH.
