Infection Prevention Technology
Pivot to a new practice
Few areas of health care were as highly impacted by COVID-19 as the infection prevention organization and its protocols. As the dust settles on 2020, the clinical data will determine the sustainability of all that’s changed.
Technology in control
An IP spends more than five hours a day collecting, mining and reporting clinical data. In fact, as a result of an exponentially increasing demand for publicly reported infection data, many IPs are exclusively focused on clinical data management.
To maximize efficiencies and provide real-time data to help IPs detect and control infectious diseases, The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology encourages healthcare facilities to invest in infection tracking and monitoring.
- Data is updated in real-time within the dashboard for review and approval of the determination.
- The reporting offers easy drill-down features to view comments or the logic of each determination prior or after submission.

How Baptist Hospital Drastically Reduced Infection Prevention Rates, Saving More Than $1.2 Million
As the Baptist Hospital quality department team members recognized opportunities to improve their patient safety programs, they wanted to allocate more resources to work more closely with staff on prevention strategies but their team’s time was consumed with managing the required daily abstraction workload. As a result, the hospital experienced a high number of HAIs and subsequently was penalized by CMS.
Results of the Q-Centrix Partnership:
Engaging the Q-Centrix infection prevention team and technology, Baptist Hospital eliminated their CMS penalties for HAIs and positioned their organization as a leader in the infection prevention space.
- 20+ hours a month for the Baptist Hospital team to proactively impact infection prevention
- 45% reduction in CAUTI incidents
- 73% reduction in CLABSI incidents
- $1,206,914 savings in penalties and costs for the hospital
