These documents depict data on healthcare associated infections for those measures which hospitals are required by the state to report. The intended audience is hospital quality leaders and infection preventionists. Data are pulled from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). The reports are made possible by conferred rights to the Maryland Hospital Association (MHA) for the data hospitals enter into the NHSN portal. The reports display hospital-specific performance relative to statewide performance and relative to the thresholds used for Maryland’s payment policy, which incentivizes hospitals’ infection reduction by placing significant revenue at risk. The reports depict 12 months of data and will be updated monthly.
