Thank You!
Your Dedication Helped Florida Achieve the
First Medicare Clostridium difficile Infection (CDI) Reporting Goal for This National Project.
Medicare set a bold goal to have our state enter all CDI data into the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) for the first six months of 2018 by the end of July. Health Services Advisory Group is happy to report that together, we achieved this goal!
We have another major reporting goal for this project! The next measurement period (July 2018 through December 2018) will be evaluated January 2019. To achieve this goal, you will need to continue reporting monthly data by day 10 of each month.

Reminder: July CDI data reporting is due August 10, 2018.
Thank you again for your commitment to resident safety and your partnership with this important national initiative.
Sincerely,

The HSAG CDI Cohort Team
