HAI Advisory Committee

What is the HAIAC?

Oregon’s lawmakers passed House Bill 2524 in 2007, creating the Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA) Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Program. The HAI Program works to understand and reduce patient infections that occur as a result of the healthcare they receive. The HAI Advisory Committee (HAIAC) is a multidisciplinary group of stakeholders and partners including healthcare providers, consumers, insurers, and other experts. It provides oversight and advises the HAI Program regarding HAI surveillance and prevention.
