Health Commerce System

The Health Commerce System (HCS) is the secure website for web-based interactions with the New York State Department of Health which includes eCLEP, the application tool for clincial laboratories to submit changes to the laboratory's operations, complete the annual permit reapplication process, review and respond to laboratory survey reports and designate proficiency testing enrollment.  Every individual accessing the Health Commerce System must have their own HCS account. Sharing of an account user id and password is a violation of the security user agreement, which will result in a termination of your HCS account privileges and possible prosecution if data security is compromised because of the violation.

NOTE: All changes in clinical laboratory directorship must be made through eCLEP. A request to change the director role for the laboratory affiliation record using the HCS Coordinator Tools function does not constitute official notification.  If the clinical laboratory is unable to access eCLEP to report a director change, CLEP must be contacted immediately by emailing clepcert@health.ny.gov.

Access to eCLEP

eCLEP is the application tool  for clincial laboratories to submit changes to the laboratory's operations, complete the annual permit reapplication process, review and respond to laboratory survey reports and designate proficiency testing enrollment. 

After an HCS account has been obtained, HCS Coordinators and other users must also request access to eCLEP.   Please see Accessing eCLEP below.

 

Clinical Laboratory Evaluation Program (CLEP) Policy:

Laboratory Directors are required to obtain an HCS account and affiliate that account for each clinical laboratory they direct as part of the requirements for a clinical laboratory permit. Requests for HCS accounts or affiliation of an existing HCS acccount are made by submitting a completed Director HCS Affiliation Request Form to clep@health.ny.gov

Note: Do you already have an HCS Account? Contact the Commerce Accounts Management Unit (CAMU) at 1-866-529-1890 (option1) or CAMU@its.ny.gov to see if you already have an HCS Account.
