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 continues the process from our May 14 workshop. Join us for a live demonstration of NHSN COVID-19 data entry process where we’ll cover the required data points and their definitions.
