Get Ahead of the Game with Your Infection Control Plan

In October 2014, CMS began reducing Medicare payments for hospitals that rank in the worst performing quartile of subsection hospitals with respect to hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).

Don't Wait Until Your Facility Gets Cited and Fined For Not Having a Place To Store Your Yankauer

The new CMS policy involves healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), which are a common, expensive, and often preventable cause of inpatient morbidity and mortality. Approximately 2 million patients per year develop HAIs, or about 5% of acute hospital admissions. The last decade alone has seen an estimated 36% increase in HAIs (1). The estimated 100,000 deaths per year associated with HAIs rank this as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States (2). In a recent study capturing additional underlying expenses, the excess hospital cost of HAIs across the nation was estimated to be between 28-45 billion dollars annually (3).

The aim of the CMS hospital-acquired condition reimbursement policy is to drive changes in organizational structures that may facilitate process change including the development of care pathways and ultimately clinician behavior change. This is in contrast to other pay-for-performance initiatives where individuals are directly paid to consciously modify their behavior (4).
