Governors call on the administration to delay changes to hospital reporting requirements

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Governors Association, on behalf of the governors in all 55 states and territories, is urging the Trump administration to delay the changes to hospital reporting requirements announced on Monday for 30 days.

A letter to governors, signed by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx, was sent Monday evening, requiring the use of a new reporting mechanism for hospitals, daily reporting from hospitals and additional data to be included.

The administration implemented these changes effective as of Wednesday.

The administration has stated that it plans to utilize this data to better allocate supplies and drugs to states.

To ensure the accurate reporting of this data, governors are requesting a 30-day delay of these new requirements, in order for hospitals to learn a new system, as they continue to deal with this pandemic.

In addition, governors urge the administration to make this information publicly available.
