Summary of standard

This standard defines the format and structure for capturing the information used to undertake surveillance of health care-associated infections.

High-quality data will provide the ability to monitor the occurrence of health care-associated infections. Relevant data that is consistently captured electronically will provide the sector with valuable information to support it in identifying, addressing and resourcing instances of infections as well as outbreaks.
