Trump Administration Calls on Hospitals to Report COVID-19 Data

On March 29, 2020, the Trump Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sent a letter to hospitals across the country requesting immediate and daily reporting of COVID-19 testing data from in-house laboratories. In the letter, hospitals are requested to submit COVID-19 testing data to the US Department of Health and Human Services, as well as supply and hospital capacity to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This request is the latest from the Administration and is part of the efforts of the Coronavirus Task Force.
