We’re pleased to invite you to join the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, PFCC partners, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for a webinar about health care-associated infections (HAIs).
HAIs are infections that people get while receiving care for another condition. HAIs are a significant cause of illness and death, affecting about 1 in 25 Americans who receive hospital care.
In October 2016, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced new targets for the national acute care hospital metrics outlined in the National Action Plan to Prevent Health Care-Associated Infections: Road Map to Elimination (HAI Action Plan).
During this webinar, we’ll share:
- A patient perspective on HAIs and their consequences
- An in-depth look at the new acute care hospital targets and measures
- Updates on HAI Action Plan data sources
- How federal health agencies are working together to improve patient safety in acute care hospitals
