Invitation to Participate with SHARP to Reduce HAIs
Join the Surveillance for Healthcare-Associated and Resistant Pathogens (SHARP) Unit in surveillance and prevention initiatives to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in Michigan. Enroll your facility in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) to conduct facility HAI infection surveillance and share your data with us!
Contact us for additional information on MDHHS SHARP surveillance and prevention initiatives, and confidentiality and data use agreements (such as the third party addendum which gives SHARP permission to release NHSN data to MHA Keystone).
