October 16, 2018: NOTICE UPDATE!

An update was made to DDCT this week. Users are able to enter and save information for the General Information screen, units, certifications, Clinical Nurses (other than APNs), and LPNs. Data is currently not being saved for the other areas IF you are entering data for one role at a time. Until we have this fixed, please select Clinical Nurses plus the role you need to enter data into and you will be able to save.. 

This notice will be updated when the issue is resolved.

Demographic Matrix Export

The far right "totals" column values for RN Turnover, RN Vacancy, and % RNs/LPNs/UAP are not currently accurate. These data points are accurate as displayed in the DDCT.

XML Schema

Use of the XML Schema requires that your organization acquire the services of an Information Technology professional with expert knowledge of Extensible Markup Language (XML) and a thorough understanding of your organization’s source data systems.
