PDAS Project Overview

  • History & Background

  • What is the new PDAS?

  • How does the new PDAS work?

  • Conclusion



  • Napa State Hospital opened its doors on November 15, 1875

  • 136 years old

  • Napa State Hospital is licensed for 1362 beds

    • 83% are in-house / forensic

    • 17% are civil

  • There are three Levels of Care (LOC) at Napa State Hospital

    • Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)

    • Acute Psychiatric

    • Intermediate Care Facility

  • Napa State Hospital employs 2300 staff

  • Napa State Hospital sits on 420 developed acres





The objective of the project was to improve safety at NSH and all State Hospitals by implementing a Personal Duress Alarm System (PDAS).

Key Benefits:

  • Areas within the STA are covered by the alarm system

  • Incident response times reduced

  • Immediate notification to responders

  • Accurate location of incidents anywhere on campus

  • All employees receive an alarm for signaling alerts

What is the new pdas

What is the new PDAS?

  • The solution is a Real Time Location System (RTLS).

  • This PDAS utilizes a Wi-Fi network integrated with the hospital’s existing data network.

  • Employees will use a Wi-Fi ID tag they can activate in a duress situation to trigger alerts.

What is the new pdas1

What is the New PDAS?

The new PDAS components are:

  • Wireless Access Points

  • Wireless LAN Controllers

  • Location Tracking Server

  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags

  • Beacons

What is the new pdas2

What is the new PDAS?

  • The hospital campus is divided into zones with zone names clearly marked throughout the campus.

  • All zones and tags appear on the system monitoring stations.

  • When an alert is triggered, the zone where the tag alarm was triggered will appear on tags located in that zone only.

What is the new pdas3

What is the new PDAS?

  • The PDAS utilizes maps of the entire hospital campus that are viewed on a monitor screen.

  • The ID tags appear on the maps based on the tag wearer’s physical location.

This screenshot shows a portion of a building map that would be viewed by PDAS administrators/dispatch staff. You can see the icons representing different types of staff. The remainder of the building has been erased on screenshots for security reasons.

How does the new pdas work

How does the new PDAS work?

  • When a PDAS tag is pulled, an alert message is sent to the Location Tracking Server via the Wi-Fi network.

  • A text message alert and the location information are delivered to dispatch, security personnel, and other hospital staff.

  • The staff member receives an acknowledgement that their call for help has been received.

  • The location information that is sent to security personnel and staff corresponds to the mapped zone signs.



  • With the new PDAS, staff can trigger a duress alarm from anywhere on campus, and receive help quicker than ever before.

  • Responders are able to locate staff with increased accuracy.

  • Staff will receive text messages alerting them to nearby staff under duress so bring help.

  • PDAS facilitates enhanced response evaluation.

  • Ultimately, the PDAS has enhanced worker and patient safety.

Overview of the ihss program

Overview of the IHSS Program

The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program provides personal care domestic services to aged, blind or disabled individuals in their own homes. The purpose of the program is to allow these individuals to live safely at home rather than in costly and less desirable out-of-home placement facilities.

  • 440,000 IHSS Service Recipients

  • 450,000 IHSS Service Providers

  • Approximately $4 billion payroll annually – the state acts as the payroll agent for recipients



California Office of Systems Integration (OSI)

  • Project Management agent on behalf of the CaliforniaDepartment of Social Services (CDSS) for some of California’s largest Human Services automation efforts

    CDSS is the project sponsor for theCMIPS II Project

    OSI, in partnership with CDSS and the 58 California counties has managed the project from inception to implementation



Complex Stakeholder Relationships

  • CDSS

  • 58 California Counties

  • State and Federal Control Agencies, State Legislature

  • The County Welfare Directors Association

  • Labor unions

  • Advocacy Groups

  • Insurance companies

CMIPS II Project Overview

Collaboration with Stakeholders

  • What Worked Well

    • Consensus build starting at team level, County Partners, Associations, Customers, Executive Stakeholders

  • What didn’t Work so Well

    • Unions, Advocate Groups, Health Benefit Managers lost focus between design and implementation

Cmips ii project overview3

CMIPS II Project Overview

Implementation Methods (both good and bad)

  • Pilots and Waves

    • Good - trial by fire, feedback loop for improvements, build momentum

    • Bad - extended schedule, increased risk of change during implementation

  • Overlap Approach

    • Crashed the schedule, starting off with no room for slip
