Business Pulse connects CDC and business to address public health issues

Every day, 1 in 20 hospitalized patients has an infection caused by medical care. Health care-associated infections are costly to businesses and are potentially lethal to employees. In fact, health care-associated infections create an economic burden of as much as $45 billion for citizens and businesses each year, even though 70 percent of some infections are preventable. Today, the CDC Foundation published its latest Business Pulse: How CDC Protects the Health of Your Business. This issue highlights specific safe health care challenges faced by businesses, and a conversation between Healthcare Corporation of America’s Chief Medical Director Dr. Jonathan Perlin and CDC expert Dr. Michael Bell.
