Submit Facility Utilization Data (SIERA)

The System for Integrated Electronic Reporting and Auditing (SIERA) provides health facilities to easily submit annual utilization reports, view and revise submitted annual utilization reports, and view facility and license information.


Welcome to the SIERA Utilization reporting system!

HCAI is pleased to announce the implementation of HCAI’s reporting system for the collection of the Annual Utilization Report.  The System of Integrated Electronic Reporting and Auditing (SIERA) is HCAI’s report collection enterprise system for facility utilization information.  The report was previously submitted via the ALIRTS reporting system.  Beginning with the 2018 Annual Utilization Report, utilization reports will be submitted exclusively on the SIERA system.
