“Q‑Centrix has been very helpful and responsive to our needs [related to surgical denominator extraction].”

Escape from beneath all the data

Most IPs spend more than five hours a day collecting, mining, and reporting infection data. Which means they are unable to spend that time preventing hospital-acquired infections. Complicating matters for hospitals, CMS is moving swiftly to address what the CDC has called a “public health crisis” by encouraging hospitals to improve their infection control and prevention practices through aggressive penalty strategies.

How It Works:

01

A list of positive screens are populated within Q‑Apps, using any number of mechanisms:

  • Infection prevention platform
  • Report
  • Data feed

02

Our team of expert infection preventionists reviews cultures using National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) protocols to identify any HAIs.

03

Partner hospital team reviews and approves the results.

04

Data is submitted to the NHSN.

An expense you really can't afford

Many hospitals face budget constraints and are reluctant to invest in an area like infection prevention that doesn't generate traditional revenue. Yet the cost to create an effective infection prevention program could be financed by avoiding nine SSIs (surgical site infections).
