OHSN New Feature! Based on feedback from OHSN testing with healthcare facilities, We added a new OHSN feature: a mapping tool. If your healthcare facility can export its existing data to Excel, then this new tool can help you match your local terms and values to OHSN values. This one-time mapping allows you to keep your own data collection processes, while still enabling you to benchmark your rates against those of other, similar healthcare facilities. For more information see the Facility Tools. You can also contact the OHSN team.

We have been working with commercial software vendors to incorporate exportable OHSN reports directly into future versions of their software. Vendors that have been in communication with OHSN include:

We encourage you to talk to your software vendors and let them know that you are eager to work with OHSN.
