3406 - Emerging Role of Corporate Infection Prevention and Control: Unleashing the Efficacy of Prevention Across an Integrated Delivery Network

Friday, June 16
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: Oregon Convention Center, E 145-146

Mergers of healthcare systems under the Affordable Care Act grew by 18 percent in 2014 and this trend is likely to continue. As a result, infection prevention and control (IPC) programs are consolidating across multiple facilities and diverse geographic locations into large integrated delivery networks (IDNs). What are the implications for infection preventionists in this changing landscape? This session will provide insights into answering this question from experience at three large nationwide IDNs. Content will address use of IDNs to align member organizations on prevention of healthcare-associated infections, use of the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Group function to develop quantitative targets for prevention, standardization of products and practices, and opportunities for conducting implementation science research. This organizational trend has important messages for novice to advanced infection preventionists.
