ODP Announcement 20-071:
Pennsylvania ODP — Provider Staff COVID-19 Tracking Forms
The purpose of this communication is to introduce the web-based provider staff COVID19 reporting and tracking forms.
Effective June 10, ODP is transitioning to a web-based tool that will serve as the method
for providers to report and track suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst
staff. Each provider has been asked to name a primary and secondary contact who will
be given access to complete the tracking tool and utilize available reporting features.
The Provider Staff COVID-19 Tracking Form functionality resides in PA ODP’s Health Risk
Screening Tool (HRST) database. Providers must start reporting and tracking suspected
and confirmed staff COVID-19 cases to the HRS system. Reporting to the HRS system
replaces the previous mandate to report to the RA account. It is not necessary to report
previously reported cases to the new HRS system, however any outstanding reports
dated prior to June 10 should still be submitted to the RA account. If your provider
agency currently utilizes the HRST and your designated Primary and Secondary contacts
are already HRST users, the tracking form functionality will be made available in their
existing accounts. If your provider agency does not currently utilize the HRST, your
designated Primary and Secondary contacts will have accounts created for them with
access granted to only the tracking form functionality.
