Healthcare-Associated Infections Program



General information


Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are infections acquired during the delivery of medical care that were not present or incubating upon exposure to the healthcare setting.

In 2009, The Kansas HAI Program was created. The HAI program performs activities pursuant of developing state level HAI infrastructure and monitoring of HAIs. It is also guided by the mission set forth by the Kansas HAI Advisory Group to enhance HAI prevention efforts and collaborate with key healthcare organizations in the state, and nationally, to promote HAI prevention initiatives. The program has served to develop key relationships between healthcare providers and key state agencies and bureaus. Additionally, the program provides consultative service on infection prevention and control across the continuum of care.
