Healthcare-Associated Infections Learning & Action Network (HAI LAN)

HAI LAN Project Logo

Network Project Lead:  Lori Finch, MS, RN, CNN

The Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition (MARC), Healthcare-Associated Infections Learning and Action Network (HAI LAN) exists to:

  1. Improve relationships between dialysis centers and hospitals that care for the same ESRD patients
  2. Improve the quality of data reported to NHSN so that it may more reliably be used to target and evaluate prevention activities
  3. Reduce HAI rates among ESRD patients receiving dialysis care in both in-center and home settings, with a priority focus on prevention of and reduction in the incidence of BSIs
  4. Improve ESRD patient vaccination rates




MARC is recruiting members for our HAI LAN – a promising innovation that brings together professionals, subject matter experts and other stakeholders to collaborate and share best practices. Email Lori, for membership details.
