Special Notice for Behavioral Health Providers
The North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services and the Department of Information Technology will be updating the IRIS system on May 25th. IRIS will be unavailable for all users beginning Wednesday, May 25th beginning at 7:00 a.m. and is expected to be available at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 25th.
Since IRIS reports are due within 72 clock hours from the time that the provider learns of an incident, providers may obtain a hard copy of the report from the IRIS website before Wednesday morning or print forms from the DHHS website.
Reports can be submitted to the LME-MCO (Host and Home) via their fax and to DMH/DD/SAS Customer Service and Community Rights Team via fax at 919-733-4962 within specified timeframes and procedures. Providers will still need to enter the report into IRIS once the system is available. Reports to be filed with DHSR Healthcare Personnel Registry should be faxed to HCPR within specified timeframes at 919-733-3207. Reports regarding Deaths (suicide, homicide/violence, accident, or restraint) in a licensed facility should be reported to DHSR Complaint Intake Unit via fax at 919-715-7724.
