Within LCR, DPH offers access to a service that consolidates historical information on patients from a number of sources. CCMS (Coordianted Care Management System) pulls information from Emergency Room, Ambulance, Housing, Behavioral Health and Jail data sources to provide a comprehensive view of at-risk persons for the care provider.

Applying for Avatar credentials
Avatar User Credentials are issued by applying directly to DPH. For the forms, please visit the Avatar Documentation Page on SFDPH website (https://www.sfdph.org/dph/comupg/oservices/mentalHlth/BHIS/avatarUserDocs.asp ). Along with the on-boarding forms, this site has access to instructional videos and additional resources.
Everyone is required to attend training before getting their login information. Watching the instructional videos is insufficient to meet this requirement.
Everyone is required to submit a certification form that includes Taxonomy Code and NPI number. Staff will need to go the NPI Registry (https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/ ) to register and have an NPI number assigned to them. The certification form is not considered complete without the NPI/Taxonomy.
Each form has a fax number on it (Compliance 415.252.3032 / Avatar Accounts 415.252.3008). Compliance receives the certification form and electronic signature agreement. Avatar Accounts receives the account request form. It takes about 10 business days to complete the process (including creation of the Webconnect account if needed). Account information is usually emailed to the requesting supervisor.
