The Healthcare Infection Transmission Systems (HITS) Consortium takes a holistic, “boots on the ground” approach to improving infection control strategies, guidelines, and policies.  Its goal is to identify innovative strategies that align Environmental Services and Facilities Management with Infection Control and to promote overall “hospital health” through understanding key departmental, social and cultural factors that impact the success of implementing change.

The HITS 2018 Conference will be held September 18-20, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee, will bring together world experts and key opinion leaders to share their knowledge and expertise.  With a full line-up of distinguished speakers and interactive breakout sessions incorporated into each day, the HITS 2018 conference focuses on being a catalyst for change in healthcare.  For more information, please visit www.HITSConsortium.org.

About HITS

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.
