Surveillance Data

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) HAI/AR Program conducts year-round surveillance for multiple drug-resistant organisms of public health concern by collecting clinical and laboratory information from healthcare facilities.  The HAI/AR Program also monitors and tracks numerous healthcare-associated infections and metrics that are reported into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), the nation’s most widely used healthcare-associated infections tracking system.

Posting of this data is intended for the purpose of promoting the health of Philadelphia residents and for providing a reference to healthcare providers citywide to inform practice in their own institutions. PDPH attempts to post timely and reliable information, but due to the limitations of the surveillance systems used to generate these data, we cannot guarantee that all data is complete or up-to-date.
