NZNO welcomes your feedback on Ministry of Health’s draft Infections Surveillance Data Standard.
To support the ability to monitor the occurrence of infections or an outbreak by key organisms using an infection surveillance system, data needs to be captured consistently.
The draft Infection Surveillance Data Standard has been designed to identify the minimum information required to be captured for a patient’s health care encounter when a suspected or confirmed infection has been identified. This document covers infections identified in both the community and hospital setting.
Please find further information and the draft standard online here. If no feedback is received, NZNO will not make a submission.
Please send feedback to PolicyAnalysts@nzno.org.nz by 6 November 2020.
