New York

In keeping with the goal of providing quality, safe health care, the New York Department of Health developed the New York Patient Occurrence Reporting and Tracking System (NYPORTS).  For the purpose of NYPORTS reporting, an occurrence is an unintended, adverse, and undesirable development in an individual patient’s condition.  The data that is collected in NYPORTS is available to facilities to assist them in internal quality initiatives and medical error prevention.
