Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, a real-time infection prevention surveillance, documentation and reporting system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar with Tom Jordan, RN, BS, CIC, on "Federally Mandated CLABSI and SSI Reporting to NHSN."

On July 30, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its final rule for the 2011 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS). They have required for the first time that all Medicare-participating hospitals report data on healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), specifically central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) and surgical site infections (SSIs), through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).

Data collection begins January 1st, 2011. Hospitals that do not submit CLABSI and SSI data will be subject to a reduction in their Medicare Annual Payment Update starting in 2013. This data will also be publicly reported on the CMS Hospital Compare website. For hospitals not already participating in NHSN, the next few months are critical as they prepare to collect and submit data. Jordan will provide information on how to navigate within NHSN and to ensure compliance with this new requirement.

Federally Mandated CLABSI and SSI Reporting to NHSN
DATE: Wednesday, December 1, 2010
TIME: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
WHERE: sentri7.com/infection
