CMS is making available a tool to assist ambulatory surgery centers in locating their CMS certification number to complete the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network registration process.

CMS is requiring ASCs to submit data for the ASC-8: Influenza Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel measure under the ASC Quality Reporting Program. The data are to be submitted to the NHSN, with initial reporting occurring for the Oct. 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015 influenza season.

The CCN look up tool allows each ASC to enter its facility's national provider identifier in the search box to find their facility's CCN. The tool can be accessed by clicking here.
