NHSN is a national healthcare-associated infection (HAI) reporting system developed and maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is the most widely used tracking system for HAIs. It is used by health care providers to report surveillance data using standardized definitions. The Division of Public Health (DPH) encourages Wisconsin providers to use NHSN to enhance statewide surveillance.

Aggregate state data are available in the DPH Annual HAI Report, P-00340-19, (PDF). Hospital-specific data are available from the Wisconsin Hospital Association CheckPoint® and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Care Compare websites.
