Thursday, May 14, 2020, 10:30-11am
Our COVID-19 Workshop Series continues on Thursdays, 10:30 – 11:00 am.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created a module within the web-based National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) reporting system for long-term care facilities (LTCFs) to enter COVID-19 data. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandates this reporting to the CDC.
This webinar provides an overview of how to enroll in and report data for the NHSN COVID-19 module, reviews CDC resources, and offers a discussion of how the IPRO QIN-QIO can best support LTCFs in complying with this requirement. There will be time allotted for Q&A.
Join us and learn how to:
- Enroll your long-term care facility into NHSN
- Identify the data that you are required to report to NHSN
- Report the required COVID-19 data to NHSN
