Submit your data once you have finished collecting data each audit period
After all the data for your organisation has been entered for a national audit period please press the “submit” button to indicate to your Jurisdictional Coordinator (JC) that you have completed your data collection. This allows the JCs to start the data validation process, and allows for earlier dissemination of the national results. It also closes the audit so that data for the next audit period doesn’t accidently get added to the previous audit. Please see these instructions on how to locate the submit button:
View your Auditor Reports
Make sure you review your “Auditor Reports” on a regular basis. This provides you with information such as which auditors in your organisation have submitted data, how many sessions and moments they have audited, and the compliance rate from the data they have collected. If the compliance rate for some auditors is especially high or low compared with the average for your facility, this report may also indicate where further auditor education needs to be focussed. An ideal time to review these reports is at the end of each audit period.
Following on from this, remember also that all auditors, to remain current, are required to complete the online auditor assessment, and submit at least 100 moments per year. The “Auditor Reports” is a good way to check the number of moments audited.
A Personalised HHCApp
Please remember that you are able to personalise the HCW codes within HHCApp to suit your facility. For example:
- If you wish to change the name of Domestic to Housekeeping for your reports
- If you want to separate out any HCWs –eg. Report on Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy rates instead of just AH, or Medical Dr, Surgical Dr, Anaesthetist instead of just DR.
Please see these instructions to assist you:
Mobile device users
Please ensure that you log out from the HHCApp system after each session on the wards. By logging out each time there are less likely to be problems with password changes or data going into the wrong audit.
Please note that simply closing the internet browser does not log you out. You actually need to press the logout button which can be found on the Sessions page in the top right hand corner.
