Comparing Hospital Infection Data

Health Data Management: Hospitals using the MedMined hospital-acquired infection tracking application from Cardinal Health will soon be able to compare their HAI rate with other similar facilities.

The Dublin, Ohio-based vendor developed a benchmarking tool earlier this year with input from the Alabama Hospital Quality Initiative.

The application, which tracks HAIs via a standard nosocomial infection marker, now graphs the incidence of HAIs in all units of a hospital and indicates whether each unit is improving. It also enables hospitals to compare their HAI incidents with other hospitals in the same peer category.
