Abstract

We introduced a real-time surgical site infections surveillance mode (SSISM) to monitor hospital-wide surgical site infections (SSIs) based on the ICD-9-CM Volume 3 operational codes and the ICD-10 disease codes. Compared with the gold standard, the SSISM confirmed 71.9% (82/114) of SSIs from 3,048 operations with a 60-fold time-savings. The SSISM could obtain the SSI rates for each type of surgery or disease among hospital-wide inpatients in a tertiary hospital with 3,800 beds.
