Relias HCAI

Reducing variation in care among nurses and doctors to prevent and reduce healthcare-associated infections


HCAIs are medical conditions or complications that develop from hospital errors or accidents that were not present when a patient was initially admitted to the hospital.

Why are they still relevant today?

Aging Demographics

With the global change in aging demographics, the complexity of cases and the use of certain devices and interventions has increased, along with the risk of HCAIs.

Complicated Definitions

Complicated terminology and numerous abbreviations associated with HCAIs creates a need to make definitions more accessible to front-line clinicians.

Prioritising Actions

Many clinicans are juggling a number of cases and conditions, making it difficult to prioritise specific actions, thus increasing the risk of HCAIs.

Financial Implications

HCAIs continue to affect both patient and financial outcomes,  The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) approximately 300,000 patients a year in England alone acquire a healthcare-associated infection as a result of care within the NHS. It is estimated that this costs the health service in excess of £1 billion annually.


Relias HCAI offers a powerful learning opportunity through high-fidelity scenarios that educate clinicians on the impact of diagnostic, treatment and intervention decisions.

“The assessment drastically sharpens the learning experience. It helps identify the core issues first, and supports clinicians with information specifically targeted to those high-risk areas.”


Relias HCAI is a patented assessment-driven education and analytics solution that uses data to transform how doctors and nurses learn.

So how does it exactly work?

Comprehensive Assessment
