Default Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Data Summit May 30-31, Kansas City, MO

An opportunity that might appeal to appropriately qualified and knowledgeable contributors and visitors to this site, to ensure that circumcision as a risk factor for HAIs is properly recognised and recorded.

From the Office of Healthcare Quality mailing-list email:

The 2012 “Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) Data Summit” was conceptually conceived during the “Progress Toward Eliminating Healthcare-Associated Infections” meeting, held in September 2010, after several subject matter experts and members of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Steering Committee for the Prevention of HAIs expressed the importance of reassessing the strategies in the HAI Information Systems and Technology chapter in the National Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Roadmap to Elimination.

The HAI Data Summit is a timely opportunity for public and private sector HAI prevention partners to review existing data sources and to discuss and make recommendations that focus on efforts underway or that are envisioned as ways to add efficiencies and enhance the value of the supply chain of HAI data. This supply chain originates with HAI data collection and reporting by healthcare facilities and produces outputs that are used by the facilities themselves for their own prevention purposes and for analysis, action, and public disclosure at higher geographic levels, such as the state or national level. For more information and to register, please visit the 2012 HAI Data Summit registration page.
Doctors Opposing Circumcision have produced an excellent MRSA document that might be useful and additional information about healthcare-associated infections has also been collated on this thread:
