Improving HAI Tracking Methods for Data Reported to CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network

The purpose of the EIP HAI NHSN Denominator Simplification Project is to help inform future NHSN changes that reduce the burden of data collection while maintaining accuracy.

Specifically, this project will:

  • Evaluate the use of a simplified, time–saving method to accurately estimate central line days for use in calculating CLABSI rates

Data for this project are being gathered from more than 100 hospital units across the country.

Data are expected to be available in 2012.

Technical information about this project can be found at "Technical Information — NHSN Denominator Simplification Project."
