OTIS for Law Enforcement Agencies

Online Tracking Incident System, or OTIS, is a web-based application the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) developed in April 2003. It provides state agencies, health care providers, and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) support coordinators an online method for submitting state and federally required reports of alleged neglect, abuse, injuries of unknown origin, misappropriation of client property.

All nursing homes and ICF/DD facilities in the state of Louisiana are required by law to submit allegations of physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse, caregiver neglect, and/or misappropriation of resident/client property in the OTIS system.
