NHSN COVID-19 Hospital Data Reporting Guidance

The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) has released guidance regarding COVID-19 hospital data reporting requirements that will change effective June 11.

The two primary changes are:

  • The number of data elements required to be reported to CDC will be reduced from 62 elements to 44 elements
  • Reporting cadence will change from a daily requirement to a weekly requirement, with values reported for each day of the previous week (defined as Sunday – Saturday) by the submission deadline of Tuesday.

NHSN will continue to collect several key COVID-19 hospital data elements, many which are and will continue to be displayed on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker and available for download in datasets on healthdata.gov.
