ASC Infection Prevention Initiative


Welcome to HSAG's Knock Out Infections—ASC Infection Prevention Initiative!

Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG) helps ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in California improve infection prevention (IP) practices and reduce surgical site infections (SSIs). The Knock Out Infections—ASC Infection Prevention Initiative helps ASCs create and maintain effective IP programs and collaborates with partners to assist ASCs in reducing SSIs. The initiative also engages and educates patients, families, and caregivers to be advocates in their healthcare. HSAG provides tools, resources, and educational events that aim to improve healthcare quality.

HSAG is a centralized resource for knowledge and tools that help ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) improve health quality, efficiency, and value.
