Fiscal Year 2015 Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity (ELC) HAI Funded Activities

State Healthcare-associated Infection (HAI) Prevention Infrastructure is the coordination and implementation of HAI prevention activities within the state, facilitation of the state multidisciplinary advisory group on HAIs, and implementation and reporting on progress of the state HAI plan.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AR) Prevention Program activity advances health departments’ expertise in using data to identify and facilitates implementation of prevention and response activities in healthcare facilities, thus reducing AR infection and colonization in the population overall.

Healthcare-associated Infection (HAI) Data Validation activity builds and sustains health department programs’ ability to ensure the quality of healthcare-associated infection data reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).

Hemodialysis Bloodstream Infection (BSI) activity improves infection control practices and reduces infections in outpatient hemodialysis centers.

Injection Safety activity promotes the implementation of safe injection practices among healthcare providers through education, training, and other means. The CDC-led Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC) collaborates with health departments and other partners to achieve this goal.

Infection Control Assessment and Response (ICAR) Program complements and builds upon the work that health departments have been leading within their existing HAI programs. This supplemental funding supports additional activities to bolster infection control practice and competency across the healthcare delivery system using on-site assessments, training, and evaluations of existing capacities and policies.
