Sep 13, 2023 | Irene Halferty

On Tuesday, September 12, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) hosted a webinar to discuss Data Utilization for Local Health Departments (LHDs).

Lauren Wattenmaker, team lead for Policy and Operations at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)‘s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), covered the benefits of LHD access to NHSN data regarding healthcare-associated infection (HAI) and antimicrobial resistance (AR) prevention work. Wattenmaker also discusses NHSN capabilities and functionalities geared toward local jurisdictions.

This webinar also highlighted a few LHDs that have utilized NHSN and shares what steps they took to gain access to NHSN system data.
