Vecna Medical Participates in APIC North Carolina Chapter Meeting

CAMBRIDGE, MA – On March 30, Vecna Medical will attend the North Carolina Chapter of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Spring Conference. This year, the conference focuses on National Health Safety Network (NHSN) reporting. Vecna will demonstrate to conference attendees the efficacy and efficiency of the NHSN reporting capability available through its QC PathFinder® infection surveillance software.

With Vecna’s QC PathFinder solution, infection preventionists (IPs) can easily create reports for NHSN submission. This direct-export reporting module eases administrative burdens for IPs, freeing them to engage more fully in intervention, education, and stewardship activities.

Debra Hagberg (MT (ASCP), CIC), Vecna’s Director of Business Development for Clinical Solutions, will attend APIC NC to explain the advantages of QC PathFinder to chapter members. Acknowledging the timeliness of this year’s conference theme, Hagberg noted, “As expectations for accountability increase in the field of infection prevention, the robust reporting features that QC PathFinder offers to professionals will become increasingly valuable.”

Hagberg also stated, “Vecna’s software makes reporting convenient and efficient and enables hospitals to contribute their summaries to NHSN’s valuable data collection efforts.” Reporting is directly linked to NHSN’s threefold mission of saving lives, protecting patients, and saving money. According to Hagberg, Vecna shares those goals. “NHSN’s compilation of data is crucial to making healthcare safer and more cost-effective. It is essential that healthcare professionals understand the benefits that surveillance automation can provide to their facilities.”
