HHS Holds Meetings on HAI Prevention


As part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)’ s commitment to prevent and reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), a series of free meetings are being held to engage stakeholders and the public to obtain feedback on:

• Potential for broad adoption of a single national set of healthcare-associated infection reduction metrics and targets

• Considerations (needs, barriers, and potential solutions) for operationalizing the metrics and targets in a meaningful manner;

• How to create accountability in a multi-faceted approach to reducing healthcare-associated infections; and

• Focus and approach to a messaging campaign aimed at reducing healthcare-associated infections.

Future meetings will take place in Seattle on Aug. 27 and Chicago on Sept. 22. To register for these meetings, CLICK HERE.
