Nosocomial Infection Marker
Objective case-finding for healthcare-associated infections
The automated, peer-reviewed Nosocomial Infection Marker (NIM) from CareFusion makes infection surveillance more efficient for public reporting and process improvement efforts by pre-screening likely cases of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Serving as an objective case-finding tool for quality improvement, the NIM identifies HAIs to help your hospital prevent and manage their occurrence.
The NIM saves your Infection Prevention team significant time by reducing the burden of data collection and aggregation to generate user-defined reports, freeing you to focus on opportunities to reduce HAIs. This empowers your team to provide consistent, timely feedback to patient care staff for reinforcement of best practices, measurably improving patient safety.
To quantify the clinical and financial impact of your HAI reduction efforts , the NIM supports facility-specific findings of the cost, loss and additional length of stay associated with HAIs through a DRG-adjusted outcomes analysis, helping you drive patient care process improvement.
