HSAG Expands Its Work to Help ASCs "Knock Out Infections!"
Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG), the Medicare Quality Innovation Network–Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for California, is expanding our work in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to help eradicate surgical infections. HSAG is broadening our focus from clean hands and safe injection best practices to include a comprehensive approach for surgical infection reduction in ASCs. In keeping with this expanded effort, and to more adequately describe our increased scope of work, we are revising our brand from the "Clean Hands—Safe Injections Initiative," to "Knock Out Infections—ASC Infection Prevention Initiative." Look for the new brand and logo in upcoming communications.
Follow the HSAG ASC Infection Prevention Initiative @ HSAG_QIO_ASC
HSAG is a centralized resource for knowledge and tools that help ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) improve health quality, efficiency, and value.
"I am so pleased! The Clean Hands–Safe Injections Infection Prevention Toolkit provided by Health Services Advisory Group was a huge timesaver in helping to identify hand hygiene and safe injection best practices in my ambulatory surgical center. The materials provided helped me to easily create an in-service training that the staff found to be informative and useful.
Since the training, the staff have become more mindful of these best practices and have implemented them in their daily care processes."
