#HITS2019

CONFERENCE: Buffalo, NY

Welcome to HITS 2019!

The HITS 2019 Conference will be held on August 6, 7 & 8th at the Buffalo Grand Hotel in Buffalo, New York. After the resounding success of the inaugural 2017 conference and our recent 2018 Nashville conference, we are pleased to offer you more at HITS 2019! This year, we will provide expanded network opportunities, an exhibition hall, a poster session and more! The agenda includes presentations from focus groups developed at the 2017 & 2018 conferences addressing key trends in infection prevention. We are confident that, regardless of discipline, attendees will find opportunities to be a part of the conversation and be a catalyst for change in reducing healthcare associated infections.

The Healthcare Infections Transmission System (HITS) Consortium looks to promote public health by reducing healthcare-associated infections through the integration of best infection prevention practices. HITS will focus on the major pathogen transmission systems in the healthcare setting specifically; surfaces, person to person, water and air. Join us for this one-of-a-kind, multimodal event where researchers and experts from across disciplines will work toward identifying research gaps and applying data-driven methods in the field. Meet, greet and share ideas with the individuals and organizations who are growing and sustaining the industry, as we explore creative and innovative solutions to this global problem.

How is HITS different?

Our conference theme is Catalyst for Change. Fittingly, HITS will take a holistic perspective to targeting healthcare associated infections. The conference looks to focus on “hospital health.” By including multiple disciplines in the conversation, HITS looks to remove silos and encourage a systems approach, aligning with infection prevention.
