Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
Despite the critical importance of identifying hospital-associated outbreaks as early as possible in order to limit their spread, there are currently no standardized methods for cluster detection. The CLUSTER Trial (Cluster Linkage Using Statistics to Trigger and Evaluate Response) will assess whether a statistically-based automated cluster detection method coupled with a robust response protocol will enable rapid containment of hospital clusters as measured by a reduction in cluster size and duration as compared to routine hospital cluster detection methods coupled with the same response protocol. Note: that enrolled "subjects" represents 82 individual HCA Healthcare hospitals that have been randomized
