FierceHealthCare reports that a bill has been filed (by Tim Murphy R-PA) that would require all hospitals in the U.S. to report infection rates to HHS. Under the terms of the bill, HHS would make such information available publicly on its website. Such a measure would supercede existing infection tracking underway in the states. Currently nineteen states require infection reporting, but not all make the information public.
