Coronavirus Infection Prevention & Response Program

Coronavirus Infection Prevention & Response Program

The Coronavirus outbreak is officially a pandemic. Community transmission in the U.S. is confirmed and our hospitals and health care systems will potentially be overwhelmed for an unknown period of time.

We at Primaris know that Coronavirus creates unprecedented challenges to you and your health system. Our clients tell us they are being asked to stretch their resources to the limit to meet surging Coronavirus demand in addition to existing patients who cannot be ignored. They are actively reviewing allocation of resources to cover that demand.

Primaris is ready to help you address these extraordinary requirements.  Our remote abstractors are experienced with most care measures and registries, abstracting to specification, and meeting tight deadlines - all with guaranteed accuracy.  We can help you during this challenging time.

Infection Prevention/Surveillance

An overwhelming number of patients suspected of having Coronavirus creates high volumes of urgent surveillance for possible infections. With the increasing demand on your qualified medical staff to conduct screenings and help care for these patients, your quality department will be stretched thin. Primaris can perform your infection surveillance. Our experienced team can remotely access your EHR(s) to concurrently gather, report and - importantly - alert your clinical team immediately about critical measures.

Critical Measures

  • CAUTI – Catheter-acquired urinary tract infections
  • C-Diff
  • CLABSI – Central line assoc. bloodstream infections
  • Clinical patient follow-up calls (scripted)
  • Culture results
  • MRSA
  • SSI – Surgical site infections
  • VRE 
  • Biovigilance/Hemovigilance
  • Other

Urgent Reporting Programs

  • ER Trauma Registry 
  • Regular flu reporting
  • Behavioral health tracking – restraints, seclusion, etc.
  • Internal quality measures for OPPE, FPPE
  • CD1 Reportables to DHHS
  • Other

Core Measures and Registry Reporting

Primaris does large volumes of core measure abstraction and reporting for our clients. Similarly, we perform abstraction for several dozen registries. We are ready help with these programs to free up your staff for urgent Coronavirus response.

Getting Started

We have capacity to meet increasing volume for current quality measurement and reporting very quickly. We can build on our existing work to meet your specific needs immediately and relieve your staff to address what matters most.

For new programs, we have developed a Crash Coronavirus Response Plan that in partnership with your staff will enable us to support your surveillance and reporting efforts in as little as a week.
