CLABSI Data Now on Hospital Compare

February 7, 2012

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has updated its Hospital Compare website to include data provided by hospitals on central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI).

Hospitals are required to report certain healthcare-associated infection (HAI) data under the federal inpatient prospective payment system.  To receive a full payment update for fiscal year 2013, drug hospitals are required to report CLABSI data for adult, pediatric and neonatal intensive care units.
