Hospital-acquired infections are a serious threat to patient health and safety. In 2016, association member Navicent Health, in Macon, Ga., reported more than 400 hospital acquired infections (HAIs) among patients, leading to $1.5 million in quality-related penalties. To reduce HAIs, the health system launched a quality management system that paired a staff physician with a nursing or administrative co-lead to review quality-based key performance indicators.

Join us to hear how Navicent reduced HAIs by 54 percent through electronic hand hygiene monitoring, reinstating standard infection prevention principles, and other interventions. Hospital leaders will share their experiences with the program, successes, and lessons learned.

This project was recognized as a 2018 Gage Awards Promising Program. Read more about the Gage Awards program, and view project posters and videos from all 2018 recipients.
