AAAASF understands that many facilities needed to close due the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to this hardship, AAAASF extended the Patient Safety Data Reporting (PSDR) Period 1 2020 (January 1 – March 31) due date for submissions from April 30 to July 15, 2020. This extended due date coincides with the Period 2 2020 (April 1 – June 30) due date. We hope this will give your facility ample time to enter the necessary data in the system.
Additionally, please remember that AAAASF requires a total of three (3) cases per physician to be submitted each period. For Period 2 2020 (April 1 – June 30), if cases were not performed in April (due to COVID-19 closure) then cases may be gathered from another month during the period to meet the required three (3) cases per physician. If a surgeon hasn’t performed three cases within the period, enter the cases which were performed in PSDR, then complete and submit the Override Form as appropriate.
