NHSN: Transition to the 2015 Rebaseline Guidance for IRF and LTCHs Webinar

CMS Open Door Forum

NHSN: Transition to the 2015 Rebaseline Guidance for IRF and LTCHs Webinar
When: Wednesday, November 16, 2016
Time: 1:00 PM- 2:00 PM Eastern Time
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is the nation’s most widely used healthcare-associated infection (HAI) tracking system. CDC is implementing a new national baseline for HAIs that are reported to NHSN. On December 10, 2016, NHSN Users will be able to run Standardized Infection Ratios (SIRs) for 2015 and 2016 under both the old baseline, and the new baseline. Data for 2017 and forward will be available under the new baseline only.
During this webinar, CDC explains the new HAI models, as they relate to Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs) and Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), and will discuss the reason HAI data contained within IRF and LTCH Preview Reports may not align with the data in NHSN for the same target period.
