UPrevent was created with the healthcare clinician in mind. We've done the work for you by finding today's current infection prevention resources from leading healthcare organizations and collecting them into a single, easy to use web portal. UPrevent offers educational resources designed to help you build successful infection prevention policies and procedures. Now, your staff can have access to one, comprehensive resource on current infection prevention practices.
Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are an important health problem in the U.S., according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with more than 98,000 people dying from HAIs each year. McKesson Medical-Surgical's goal for the UPrevent portal is to create the healthcare industry's most comprehensive source for infection prevention information and to help you keep your staff and patients healthy.
For easy navigation, information on the UPrevent portal is arranged to support the content categories that the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) use in their infection prevention survey of healthcare providers. The portal features more than 125 links to information from over 30 government and professional organizations - providing the information that healthcare providers need to build and maintain their own infection prevention program. The site provides content around the products and information caregivers need to comply with OSHA requirements and CDC recommendations regarding employee safety and infection prevention.
The site is divided into multiple market segments including one segment devoted to home health agencies. In addition, the site is updated weekly with hot topics pertaining to infection prevention and is arranged logically to help guide your search. Your agency can find guidelines, forms and checklists, staff and patient education materials, training modules and educational presentations. The site also has an "Ask the clinician" feature where you can submit questions on anything infection prevention.
