HHSC’s WS&C Portal
April 26th, 2021
Additional changes are coming to address Surveys and violations received from surveyors. These include contacting WSC staff concerning violations and submitting EOC’s and POC’s to WSC through the WSC Portal!
On April 27th and 29th 2021: HHSC hosted a webinar on WSC Portal Training for HCS/TxHmL providers.
- A recorded session of The WSC portal training
Here are the handouts:
- Basics of portal
This portal will only be used to enter final PIR Reports, Submit EOC’s (Evidence of Correction), Submit POC’s (Plans of Correction) as well as communicate with WSC staff about POC’s/EOC’s, and Report a Death of an Individual in the program.
