Temporary Health Care Services Agency Registry
The Indiana Department of Health is responsible for establishing and maintaining a temporary health care services agency registry. This was passed under HEA 1461 (2023), effective July 1, 2023, and is codified at Indiana Code § 16-52 et seq.
Additional guidance regarding who is required to register and what documentation is required to be provided can be found here.
State Health Gateway Web Portal
The state health gateway web portal will be utilized by agencies to complete an application to be placed on the registry. Once registered, the agency will be able to download a certificate of registration.
From the Gateway homepage, follow the steps on the right side of the screen to:
- Register as a new user with Access Indiana.
- Request new application access. When requesting new application access, under the drop-down menu for applications, choose Temporary Health Care Services Agency.
- Once your Gateway account has been approved, sign in and complete the application to be placed on the registry.
When your application is completed and approved, the agency will be able to download a certificate of registration.
Nurse Aide Findings Email Listserv Sign-up
Temporary Health Care Services Agencies not already receiving emails with up-to-date nurse aide findings should contact SRSHelpDesk@health.in.gov to be added to the email listserv. The email will contain certified nurse aides (CNA), qualified medication aides (QMA) and home health aides (HHA) who have had new findings for abuse, neglect, or misappropriation placed on the Indiana Aides Registry.
An abuse or misappropriation finding means that the aide is permanently prohibited from working as a CNA, QMA, or HHA.
A neglect finding means that the aide is prohibited from working as a CNA, QMA, or HHA for at least one year. The aide may then request to have his or her certification reinstated.
By signing up for the email listserv, you will be included on the most up-to-date findings placed on nurse aides potentially in contact with your agency. As always, you may check the registration status of an aide online at https://www.in.gov/pla/license/.
