Georgia Southern Examines State Law Mandates

A collaborative study led by Dr. Julie Reagan, assistant professor of health policy and management at the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University examines “State Law Mandates for Reporting of Healthcare-Associated Clostridium difficile Infections in Hospitals.” Most states have enacted laws and/or promulgated administrative regulations mandating data submission and public reporting of healthcare-associated infection (HAI) data. As part of this effort, many states have focused their efforts on the occurrence of healthcare-associated Clostridium difficile infections (CDI). The intent of this research was to review these state efforts.
