Reminder: After submitting your initial survey, you should have received a confirmation email which provided you a link to update your survey each day (instead of submitting a new survey). Multiple surveys for your facility show up twice on the map with different bed numbers. This makes it difficult to know which totals are current. Please use the link emailed to you after your initial submission to edit your facility bed availability. Please do not submit an “initial” submission more than once.
The healthcare continuum is increasingly becoming strained with the number of positive cases across the state. This portal has been established to improve communication across the care continuum to assist in ensuring Missourians have access to the right care in the right setting. We are asking all long-term care communities to complete this brief survey each day by 9:00 AM beginning Wednesday, November 25th in order to identify available beds for potential admissions. Participation in the bed availability survey is voluntary. The survey may be accessed at https://arcg.is/1rjKy8. Once the initial submission is completed, each submitter will receive a link in order to update the bed availability information. If information does not change from day to day, the submitter can simply update the date and submit – the prior day’s information will populate.
The survey information will populate an accompanying dashboard that will be available to hospitals to use as a tool in finding placement for those patients who would be best served in a long-term care setting. This dashboard may be accessed at https://mophep.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/f1e0745f93fe46b482d8ff4585f821bf.
