In this lesson, we'll walk through submitting a patient discharge data file to OSHPD. Generally, your facility's Information Technology (IT) department or an outside vendor may produce this file.
Before you can submit a data file, you need to log on to MIRCal (see Accessing MIRCal in Module 2: Basics for All Users).
By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:
- Create a reporting profile
- Select the submission type (test or formal)
- Attach the data file
- Submit the file
Jane works at CBT2, a large hospital in Central California. She is the individual responsible for submitting CBT2's patient discharge data to OSHPD. CBT2's IT department created the data file to be sent to OSHPD, copied the file to a CD, and sent it to Jane. She logs on to MIRCal, and that's where this lesson starts.
