The Joint Commission has launched an online site for information and resources on health care-associated infections (HAI). The HAI Portal is a joint effort of The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare, Joint Commission Resources, and Joint Commission International.

The goal of the HAI Portal is to provide an integrated “kiosk” of HAI resources—including those that are available free of charge and those that are available for purchase—in one organized area that is accessible through any of the Joint Commission related Web sites.

The portal is designed to meet customer needs to have all HAI-related resources easily available, including information on hand hygiene, central line-associated bloodstream infections, multidrug-resistant organisms, surgical site infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia. The HAI portal also features resources on influenza, staff education, and vaccinations.

The HAI Portal can be accessed here.
