The HAI subcommittee brings together state HAI coordinators and others interested in the surveillance, reporting, and prevention of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). CSTE works closely with federal agencies including CDC, CMS, and HHS and other partner organizations such as APIC and SHEA on this important issue. CSTE continues to create opportunities to increase the capacity of public health agencies and competency of the public health workforce in the area of HAIs. CSTE also provides subject matter experts at the state, territorial, tribal, and local levels to meet with leaders from other organizations to address HAI-related issues such as data analysis and validation, NHSN, and prevention efforts. HAI subcommittee monthly calls include updates from the CSTE liaison to the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC), Meaningful Use, and updates on HAI outbreaks.
