. 16 states are receiving funding to prevent HAIs across the spectrum of health care by
( CDC - State-based: Prevention projects - HAI ) building multi-facility prevention initiatives, including:  California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin.  Previous investments have resulted in 21 states demonstrating significant reductions in HAIs in their states, which have saved lives and health care costs.

Four states will receive HAI funding to advance the national implementation of electronic laboratory records by improving capacity to receive, validate, process, and use incoming electronic laboratory records messages in surveillance systems.  These states include: Arizona, Tennessee, South Carolina, and New Mexico.  This work will impact the timely reporting of health care-associated infections to CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network.
