About: Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) are among the leading causes of in-hospital deaths in the United States and are a significant factor for increased morbidity, mortality and health care costs. The main purpose of this preliminary study was to integrate several hospital data systems into an integrated case-controlled database to use data analytics for the identification of significant CLABSI attributes and develop time-varying patient risk scores for CLABSI. The study examined significant attributes for CLABSI positive cases within the intensive care units of a Florida hospital to develop a unique hazard rate and risk score for CLABSI.
