On April 18, 2018, DDS began using the eLicense application to process all
initial CLA and CCH applications and renewal applications online.
Providers are now able to login online and submit applications electronically
instead of on paper. This has proven to be a tremendous benefit to the
provider community as they are able to process their applications with much
greater efficiency than ever before. Providers are now able to process
plans of corrections with greater ease of use also. On the DDS side,
applications and plans of correction can now be managed by DDS/QSI users within
one centralized location. This helps to minimize the management of paper
files and maximize the reporting capabilities (to be developed) of having the
data in one location.
Special thanks to all those that participated in the sharing of information
in order to implement the eLicense application. Additional, thanks and
appreciation to the DDS-QSI supervisors and inspectors who volunteered to
become trainers and who helped with training users; the providers that
participated in the focus group and special thanks to everyone that has
been using the application for their ongoing patience with learning the new
application and providing invaluable feedback for improvements.
